Super Easy Macaroni Salad

This is a nice, basic macaroni salad. I used mayonnaise and added some sugar and vinegar to add some tanginess. The diced red onions are nice for crunch as well as flavor.

This is a great summer salad! Perfect for that backyard BBQ!!!

Super Easy Macaroni Salad


2 cups macaroni (I use whatever is in my cupboard)
1⁄2 cup cubed cheese (I prefer cheddar or co-jack)
1⁄2 cup cubed ham
1/4 cup diced red onions
1⁄2 cup Miracle Whip (can sub mayo your choice)
1 tablespoon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste


Cook, drain and rinse macaroni and put in fridge while you dice up cheese and ham.

Mix together cold macaroni, cheese, onions and ham in a bowl.

In a separate bowl mix miracle whip and mustard. (If it is too tangy my mom would put a little sugar in it about a tsp.).

Mix it all together and chill or serve immediately.
