My Amish Macaroni Salad

This has got to be the best macaroni salad out there~ I've been using this recipe for years.

2 cups uncooked macaroni (this makes 4 cups cooked)

1/2 small onion, diced

1 stalk celery, diced

1 carrot, diced

1/4 green bell pepper, diced

2 t. sweet relish

2 cups mayonnaise (don't use Marzetti's)

3 Tbsp. yellow mustard

1/3 cup sugar

2 t apple cider vinegar

1/4 t salt

1/2 t celery seed

1-2 hard cooked eggs (sliced)


Cook pasta and drain well. Dice veggies, sit aside. Combine mayo, mustard, sugar and vinegar. Whisk well. Allow sugar to blend so it is not grainy. Once this is smooth, add pasta and veggies. Stir to mix well. When serving, I top the pasta with sliced hard cooked eggs. Some versions of this recipe has the egg combined. I think it looks better placed on top of the pasta.


You can eliminate any of the veggies that are not to your liking. Also, you can use dill relish. Either way is fine. I've used both!
