1 cup real mayonnaise 2 tablespoons vinegar 1 tablespoon prepared mustard 1 teaspoon sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 8 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked and drained 1 cup celery, sliced 1 cup green or red bell pepper, chopped 1/4 cup onion, chopped
Combine the first 8 ingredients. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and chill.
I use miracle whip instead of mayo and omit the sugar. Just my preference. I've made this twice now and will make again.

This recipe is so delicious! All my friends love when I make it, and adding little cheddar cheese chunks makes it even better! I will continue making this for a very long time :)

Not only is this macaroni salad now a family favorite, it is so easy to make!!! My family asks me to make it for all of the picnic gatherings...there are never any left overs. I find that if I make it the night before the picnic, it tastes even better, if that is possible. I also have been using the Barilla Plus Elbows...what a difference. Thank you for posting this recipe!
