Easy Macaroni Salad

The weather is beautiful here in California this weekend, so we are having a BBQ at my mother’s house for Mothers’ Day.  I am making a macaroni salad becuase there is nothing like comfort food when seeing my parents.  This recipe is quick to put together, which fits in with my schedule.


Macaroni Salad

2 1/2 cups mayonnaise

1 cup chopped celery

3/4 cup chopped bell peppers (any color)

1/2 cup chopped onions

1/4 cup yellow mustard (prepared)

1 10 oz. can black olives (sliced or chopped)

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 16 oz. package elbow macaroni

1.  Cook the macaroni according to package directions.  Rinse in cold water and set aside in refrigerator.

2.  Mix remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Once combined, add cooked macaroni and mix well.

3. Chill in refrigerator for at least an hour or overnight.
