“Quick and easy. Tastes best when it sits for a while before serving. I change up the veggies every time I make it, with whatever I have on hand. Carrots and celery work well.”

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water until macaroni is cooled.
  2. Place macaroni into a large salad bowl and stir in tomatoes, green bell pepper, cucumber, and green onion.
  3. Whisk sugar, vegetable oil, ketchup, vinegar, salt, paprika, and black pepper, stirring in a bowl until sugar has dissolved. Pour dressing over macaroni and vegetables and toss to coat.

Great alternative to all the macaroni/mayo salads! I made it as written with the exception of a little less sugar, and got many compliments at a party this summer. My kids liked it, too. Will make this regularly - thank you for sharing this recipe!
