1 1/2 cups
chopped fresh parsley
prepared yellow mustard
white sugar, or more to taste
hard-cooked eggs, chopped
Best macaroni salad recipe I've tried yet! Simple but great just the way it is or a wonderful base recipe to expand on. Will be making this again with Old Bay and crab meat soon! Two suggestions: First off, more onions and a course chop or they'll get lost in it all. Secondly, it will dry out in the fridge. When it does, just add water until it gets the creaminess back! Thanks for the recipe!
Without a doubt, wonderful salad. The rice wine vinager and a little bit of sugar make all the differance in the world. I'm thinking of adding a little cheadder cheese next time. Made it as recipe and made no changes. Thank you for a great and easy salad.
Made this yesterday- It's really good. I love that I didn't have to chop a ton of stuff. Did add a significant amount more of Mayo- It was too dry otherwise and I added another 2tsp of rice wine vinegar. Had to sub a tsp of celery salt for the seed and salt. LOVED THIS. WILL MAKE IT AGAIN.
Did this tonight for Labor Day! Just excellent. I did add maybe a dozen or so stuffed green olives for a little brine favor... Next time, I might try a little more rice vinegar. But darned good stuff. The leftovers are MINE.
Awesome!!! Increased salt n rice vinegar n reduced mustard by half...just to suit my tastes. So glad I didn't start adding extras!! Thought it would b one dimensional n need some additives but it is literally perfect, simple n tasty!! Thnk u!!
After reading the reviews I tried this recipe and absolutely loved it. My only changes were that I used dried parsley, as I didn't have fresh. I also used finely chopped celery instead of celery seeds. Great recipe, it will be my standard from now on.
This recipe is beyond excellent! The only thing we added was 1 rib of finely chopped celery. Divine...
This is the best macaroni salad I have ever tasted! I doubled the pasta and used about half the amount of onion. I also used only the whites of the hard boiled eggs, and the yolks weren't missed at all. I didn't have elbow macaroni in my pantry, so I used small penne, and it was just fine. I didn't need to increase the amount of mayonnaise even with the increase in pasta...it was still very creamy...could even have used less in order to be a little bit more healthy. This is easy, and oh so delicious. I will make this again soon! I hard boiled extra eggs while making the three for this recipe - to keep in the fridge for egg salad or a snack. Thanks for this great recipe!
