Best Macaroni Salad Ever
40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
7 ingredients
8-12 servings
My mom made macaroni salad for potluck's, bbq's, picnic's, parties, etc during the summer when I was a kid. She taught me how to make it and I've been making it ever since then. A friend of mine came over for a get together and she added the beaver's sweet hot mustard instead of regular mustard and what a difference. It gave it that little something extra that just makes this mac salad stand out from the rest. Although you do want to go sparingly as a little does go a long way.
