Why I Love This Recipe

This is the recipe I make at the high school I work at! I've never made macaroni salad until this school year! My co-worker Rose, came up with the idea that we try to create her grandmother's recipe and boy it turned out delicious and the students and teachers love it! Anytime we use homemade recipes at school, they are well received!

I make big batches at school so my measurements are approximate and feel free to adjust!

Ingredients You'll Need

16 ounces elbow macaroni noodles
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1-1/2 cups Creamy Ranch Salad Dressing
1 medium green bell pepper, diced
3 stalks celery, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 tablespoon sugar
salt & pepper, to taste


Boil noodles 8 minutes or until done. Drain. You don't want them over cooked.

Dice veggies and slice tomatoes.

In a large bowl add drained noodles and remaining ingredients.

Mix well and refrigerate, covered, 2 hours.

Stir well before serving.
