Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is named after the nun that introduced me to macaroni salad. She had made it for a school outing when I was in grade school, and it's how I've made it ever since.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups uncooked macaroni
1/2 cup mayonnaise
salt & pepper to taste
2 tsp. vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
2 carrots, peeled and grated on large holes of box grater
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
grated onion, to taste


Cook macaroni in boiling salted water; drain and rinse in cold water, then set aside to dry a bit.

In medium to large bowl, mix mayonnaise, vinegar, and sugar.

Add macaroni to bowl, as well as vegetables and salt & pepper.

Mix all components well and adjust seasoning as necessary.

NOTE: I sometimes add 1/2 teasp. poultry seasoning or dill weed for added flavor.
