“This is a family recipe for mac salad that was made for all holidays, cookouts, or family get-togethers. Traditional, simple, quick, and feeds a crowd. Add more mayonnaise if salad seems too dry.” - by Brandilynn7
Original recipe yields 12 servings
- 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 macaroni under cold water until chilled. Transfer macaroni to a large salad bowl.
- Toss pasta with hard-cooked eggs, onion, celery, and green bell pepper. Whisk mayonnaise, milk, pickle relish, and honey mustard in a bowl and pour dressing over the salad; mix well and season with sea salt and ground black pepper.

"I love making this the healthy way, using whole wheat noodles. I use fat free mayo, skim milk, and don't use the egg yolks. I also up the veggies (and sometimes add diced carrots and/or apples) and up..." See more the honey mustard to 1/2 a cup when I make it low-fat, to give it a little extra zing. Using fat free mayo does change the flavor, which is why I up the honey mustard. People don't even know it's low fat when I make it this way."
"This was very good and a nice change from 'regular' macaroni salad! We really enjoyed the subtle flavor of the honey mustard, and all the flavors blended well together. When I first mixed everything u..." See morep w/ the dressing, I was a little disappointed that it was so liquidy, but after chilling in the fridge for a few hours, it did become less liquidy, although next time, I will add less milk (personal preference) just because I like macaroni salad a little drier. All in all, this was a great recipe and one that I will make again! Thanks for sharing. :)"
