My niece Krista loves this salad and since she has good taste I asked my sister to send me the recipe which is right up my alley – it is simple and only has a few ingredients. My son Adam and several of his friends devoured it.

So without further ado:

Krista’s Macaroni salad

4 cups uncooked macaroni (I used spiral)

1 cup mayo

1/4 white vinegar

2 tbsp sugar

2 1/2 tablespoons yellow mustard

S & P to taste

Cook macaroni, add onion, celery, grated carrot and red pepper. Mix together mayo, vinegar, sugar, mustard and salt and pepper to taste. Pour over salad ingredients and voila, Krista’s fav macaroni salad.

I love this recipe because you can add what you want–I just used red pepper, onion and radishes as I had no celery and was too lazy to grate carrots!

Bliss is a simple but good recipe. What do you think?
