Macaroni Salad

Oct 29, 2019 | Sides

Say goodbye to the macaroni salad you had when you were a child and say hello to this updated recipe. Dare I say it’s elevated? This macaroni salad has red cabbage, hard boiled eggs, carrots, green onions, red onion and parsely, plus the dressing has dijon mustard and honey. It truly is a step up from what your grandmother made. Instead of a mushy texture this macaroni salad has structure and crunch from the added ingredients—and it’s filling. It pairs well with sandwiches, burgers, ribs, chicken—well really anything. Enjoy!

Make the dressing first. Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk until smooth, or use a shaker. Set aside.
