Classic Macaroni Salad
The first time I made this recipe, I did not read any other reviews. I made this exactly as written, and had the "bad feeling" about the 2/3 cup of sugar (and I used raw sugar, as I don't eat anything refined/over processed). It was TOO sweet.
The next time I made this, I changed it quite a bit: First, I omitted the sugar altogether. I used Apple Cider Vinegar instead, and used German mustard. I add more celery and carrots, and half of a jalapeno (very finely chopped). I don't add pimentos, but I do add some cubed sharp cheddar cheese. I try to cube it small enough so that every forkful has a bit of cheese. Sometimes I add paprika, depending on whether or not I remember.
My boyfriend will gladly eat the entire dish in one sitting, but if I ration him, it'll last him and I about two days (using it as a side, and sometimes as the main entree). I hope I've helped!
