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!

1 Carrot, shredded
¼ cup Green Onion, diced
1 cup Red Cabbage, thinly diced
¼ cup Red Onion, diced

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

Cook elbow pasta just before el dente. If you haven't done so already, hard boil your eggs at the same time. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water. Put pasta into a large bowl and add all the ingredients, then top with the dressing. Mix well and chill in the fridge at least 30 min.
