RECIPE BACKSTORY
My sister in law (who also happens to be my best friend) and I had made the same exact macaroni salad for 30 years. A couple of years ago she sent this recipe to me and it replaced the old one from then on. We usually cut the recipe in half since our family’s are both grown now and it works out well for us. This is much tastier than our old stand by.
