Amish Style Macaroni Salad
I absolutely LOVE Amish Macaroni Salad. I usually purchase it at the grocery store. But recently have decided to try to make it on my own. I went searching through recipes. However, most of the recipes had at least 2 cups of Mayo. So I adjusted and took away ingredients that my family doesn’t necessarily like. This is what I came up with. Even my husband likes it and he really doesn’t care for Macaroni salad at ALL!
2 cups Uncooked elbow macaroni (or use whatever type of noodle you prefer)
3 to 4 hard-boiled eggs-Chopped
2 Tablespoons Sweet Pickle Relish
1 Small Onion-Chopped
1 Small Red Bell Pepper-Chopped
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 cup salad dressing ( I use Miracle Whip)
1. Cook Macaroni according to package directions or until tender. Drain and set aside.
2. In a Large bowl combine eggs, onion, red bell pepper and relish.
3. In a small bowl combine salad dressing, mustard, white sugar and vinegar.
4. Pour salad dressing mixture over veggies and add pasta. Stir until evenly combine and coated. Cover and chill for 1 hour before serving.
Note: I have made this using just one large bowl and combine all ingredients until well coated. It turned out just the same. 🙂
