Macaroni Salad

This is my family's favorite macaroni salad. We like to keep it simple, in fact this is the first time I've added sliced olives... I don't think they'll mind too much.

Macaroni Salad
8 ounces salad macaroni
1 cup mayonnaise (I used low-fat)
2 Tablespoons milk (I used non-fat)
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups sliced celery
1/2 cup purple onion, chopped
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
small can sliced olives
Cook macaroni 10 minutes, rinse in cold water, drain. In large bowl stir together mayonnaise, milk, vinegar, salt, sugar, and pepper. Add macaroni, celery, onions, and eggs. Toss to coat well. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

  2. Alice, you always have something delicious going on in your house. I grew up on potato and macaroni salads at family feasts and they are one of my favorite comfort foods. I love the addition of the olives. Your salad looks delicious.
