Dad's Working Man's Macaroni Salad


"Beef bologna and American cheese make a heavier macaroni salad for a man's perspective. Good, and always gets snarfed up wherever I take it."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and cool under running water until chilled. Transfer to a large salad bowl.
  2. Stack American cheese slices alternating with bologna slices and cut into 1/2-inch dice. (Stacking helps prevent cheese from sticking together.) Mix bologna and cheese into macaroni and stir in hard-cooked eggs, sweet pickles, celery, green bell pepper, and red onion. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Stir creamy salad dressing and mustard into the salad and season with black pepper. Cover salad and chill in refrigerator until serving time.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If holding salad in refrigerator for more than about 2 hours, mix in extra creamy salad dressing and mustard mix as the macaroni will absorb a lot overnight in the fridge.
