"Slightly sweet, creamy macaroni salad that everyone enjoys."

Why I Love This Recipe

This slightly sweet, yet creamy macaroni salad is so good. My Aunt Lori makes this when a bunch of us get together for cookouts.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb macaroni
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 carrots shredded
1/4 cup onion shredded (optional)
2 and 1/2 cups mayonnaise (Hellman's)
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp sugar
kosher salt and pepper to taste


Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain well and place macaroni in a large bowl.

While macaroni is still hot, sprinkle on vinegar and add carrot and onion. Toss together until well combined. Allow to cool for about 10-15 mins

In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together mayo, milk, and sugar. Fold mayo mixture into the macaroni until all the noodles are evenly coated. Add salt and pepper to taste

Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours (best if overnight). Gently stir before serving adding a little more milk if needed, no more than a tablespoon or two

Pairs Well With

Burgers or hotdogs
