Alice's Tasty Macaroni Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
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 familyâ€™s are both grown now and it works out well for us. This is much tastier than our old stand by.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 - 16oz. package macaroni
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
2 Tablespoons sweet pickle juice
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup pimento-stuffed green olives
1/4 cup chopped sweet pickle
2 carrots, grated
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 Tablespoons celery seed
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until done. Drain, and rinse. Set aside.
2. Meanwhile place eggs in a saucepan and cover completely with cold water. Bring water to a boil. Cover, remove from heat and let eggs stand in hot water for 10-12 minutes. Remove from hot water and cool. Peel and chop.
3. In a medium bowl mix together mayonnaise, sour cream, dry mustard, and sweet pickle juice. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
4. In a large bowl combine pasta, celery, onion, olives, sweet pickles, carrots, green pepper, celery seeds and eggs. Stir in dressing and mix well. Enjoy!!!
