Macaroni Salad |

Macaroni Salad


  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (16 oz) box radiatore pasta, cooked and drained (the recipe also says you can substitute rotini pasta)
  • Garnish: chopped hard boiled egg, chopped fresh parsley (I used dry)


  1. In a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, onion, celery, sugar, water, vinegar, and garlic. Add pasta, stirring to combine well. (there is also a note on the recipe that says: Mixture will be very soupy at first, but thicken as it chills.)
  2. Cover, and chill overnight. (I gave mine a mix in the morning.) Garnish with hard boiled egg and fresh parsley if desired. Serves 12-16.
