Macaroni Salad for a Crowd

Macaroni Salad for a Crowd

Crissy Soares

"Basic and super easy macaroni salad that I make for family gatherings. I make mine with dill relish but you could change it if you prefer the sweet. Looks good and tastes even better the next day. The more you make it, the quicker you will get. Can be served right away, or make it ahead of time and keep it in the fridge."

Not bad, I did make a few changes. I left out the black olives, cut the recipe in half, used sweet relish (all I had on hand)and reduced the amount in half. I will definitely make again.

This makes a ton! I used black and green olives for extra flavor. And no boiled eggs on top just because I was serving 50 and it was too much work! But I got lots of compliments and I've been...
