Classic Macaroni Salad


  • 1 box macaroni
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Rinse under cold water and drain.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the mayo, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir in the red onion, celery, green bell pepper and macaroni. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving, but tastes best after sitting overnight. Serve and enjoy!
