Macaroni salad has always been one of my favorites. I particularly prefer it in the warmer months complimenting specific foods like bbq ribs, chicken, burgers, etc.
I’ve taken my mother’s recipe, intermingled it with my grandma H’s recipe, and added a bit of my own creativity to come up with a salad to satisfy my taste.
Grandma H always used Miracle Whip in her salads, my mom always used mayonnaise. I use mayo too. Grandma always added a touch of sugar to her recipe, my mom didn’t. I do. Neither used green olives in their salads but I generally do. I think the olives add a little zip to the salad.
Now, if you ask me for my recipe it would be a little of this, a little of that. No measuring, just a lot of little tastes until I’m satisfied with the results.
What about you? Do you have a recipe you follow? Or, are you a creator like me?
