This is a nice, basic, super Easy Macaroni Salad. I used mayonnaise and added some sugar and vinegar to add some tanginess. Red onions add crunch!
The diced red onions are nice for crunch as well as flavor.
This is a great summer salad! Perfect for that backyard BBQ!
This Macaroni salad really is super easy. If you can cook pasta and dice you can make this 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.
