This Simple Macaroni Salad Recipe is filled with all the classic ingredients, tossed in a creamy sauce and perfect for summer potlucks and parties!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb. elbow macaroni noodles, uncooked
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup cubed sharp cheddar cheese

For the Dressing:

  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup distilled vinegar
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:

1 ) Cook the noodles according to package instructions, then drain and rinse with cool water. I like to add a few ice cubes to the noodles while running cool water over them to help cool the noodles faster. Drain and add pasta to a large bowl.

2 ) Add in the diced celery, red onion, red bell pepper, peas, and cheese.

For the Dressing:

1 ) Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl until smooth and creamy.

2 ) Pour the dressing into the large bowl and stir to coat evenly. Keep the salad covered and refrigerated until ready to serve. Enjoy!

NOTES:

Macaroni Salad Recipe can be made up to a day ahead of time. Keep refrigerated and stir just before serving.
