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