Mom's Macaroni Salad

Macaroni Salad on the menu in Book recipe, and we are going to teach you how to make this delicious recipe from scratch!

Macaroni Salad is so nostalgic to me. Every family BBQ we have had has a giant bowl of it, and the bowl is ALWAYS empty at the end of the night! Licked clean! It’s a toss-up whether this is my mom’s or grandma’s recipe, but either way, it is our family staple. It may seem basic because of how simple it is, but the flavor is everything besides basic! I know you will love this!
