Macaroni Salad

    30 mins

    This is my mother-in-law's recipe. It is deceptively easy and includes thinly sliced spring onions, celery and a bit of mayonnaise. Any small pasta shape such as penne, farfalle or shells can also be used.

    A wonderful, healthy and relishing recipe...  -  30 Apr 2013


    This was a hit at a party we had, it is even better the second day.  -  27 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent! No changes, just seasonal additions. Chopped zucchini, fresh snap peas, cucumber, green are limited by your imagination. I also learned on Cook Illustrated to add seasoning to ingredients and let sit a bit (1/2 hour) before mixing in the mayo. Seasonings absorb better to macaroni, instead of mayo. Thank you for sharing.  -  30 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
