If you’re looking for a dish to make for a cookout, potluck, picnic, or summer get-together, you can’t go wrong with classic macaroni salad with creamy mayo dressing.
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 stalk celery finely chopped
- 2 tbsp sweet relish
- 8 oz cheddar cheese diced
- 1 pound elbow macaroni cooked al dente and drained
Boil the macaroni in salted water until it’s al dente. Rinse in cold water and drain well.
In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, white vinegar, sugar, salt, black pepper, celery, sweet relish, and cheddar. Stir it until all of the ingredients are incorporated.
Fold the macaroni into the dressing mixture and stir to coat.
Cover the bowl with foil or plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge. Let it chill for at least 3 hours, or overnight.
