Missing You Macaroni Salad

Macaroni salad is a favorite around here….a favorite fall back. This is a sweet cooked dressing rather like you buy in a jar.

Macaroni Salad

1/2 lb macaroni-cooked
2 carrots-grated or chopped
1 c celery-sliced fine or chopped
1 pepper-chopped or substitute small jar of diced pimentos
2 hard boiled eggs (optional)


1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c vinegar
2 eggs
1 T cornstarch
1 tsp mustard
pinch of salt

Mix dressing ingredients over medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture thickens.  Pour over other ingredients, stir to blend. Chill for 2 hours or overnight.


  1. Yum! I love pasta salads.

  2. Thanks for sharing the recipe – always looking for “the” one — printing now.

  3. Good luck Cate! I am the same way in looking for the right pasta salad. This isn’t the one for me yet…I have yet to find that one. I keep trying.

    We do too Jackie!

  4. This sounds REALLY yummy. I’m grilling burgers for some friends tonight, and this sounds like it will be super yummy with some cheese and onions added in. Plus I can serve leftovers for lunch tomorrow! The less I am forced to cook, the happier I am. 😉
