Macaroni Salad

Macaroni Salad is good anytime but especially when having a cookout and a picnic. I like making it the day before because the flavors all come together when it sits in the refrigerator. This is another simple basic recipe that tastes so good! I have made it this way since I started cooking.


Boil and drain your macaroni. Place the cooked macaroni in the refrigerato for about a half hour to cool down the macaroni.  Add the salt & pepper, diced celery and chopped hard boiled eggs.


Add Miracle Whip to your taste. Mix together and top with hard boiled egg slices. Garnish with paprika and refrigerate until ready to use.
