EASY MACARONI SALAD RECIPE



EASY MACARONI SALAD RECIPE



The classic macaroni salad is an easy side dish to prepare the night before your next picnic or potluck with a creamy, tangy classic vinaigrette.


Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
  • 6 oz cheddar cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 4 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 lb elbow macaroni
  • 1 cup of frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup of fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup mayo


Instructions:
  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions. You want the pasta to still be firm so cook until al dente. Immediately rinse under cold water and drain so it isn’t sticky and prevents it from over cooking.  Drain well.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss together cooked pasta with the cubed cheese, onion, celery, bell pepper, and peas.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, mix together mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, dill, sugar, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.
  4. Pour the mixture over the pasta and toss until everything is well coated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour before serving. Enjoy your salad!
