When I was little I spent most of my Saturdays and summers dancing at a studio in a small California town. On our lunch breaks the dancers would go next door to a family-owned deli that had the BEST sandwiches ever. It was here that I discovered my love for classic macaroni salad. Every single day I could I’d order half a turkey sandwich and a small pasta salad to take back to the studio and eat on the dressing room floor. The memories I have with these friends may be why I always get nostalgic when it comes to pasta salads.
Today’s recipe comes from C Jay at Food.com and reminds me of childhood 🙂
- 2 cups cooked macaroni
- 2 eggs, chopped
- 1/4 cup celery, diced
- 1/4 cup onion, diced
- 1/3-1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
- Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Chill thoroughly.
- Serves 4.
And there you have it, simple, easy and delicious – you can add some peas too if you’d like.
