Mom's Macaroni Salad

This macaroni salad seems to stretch far. This is the recipe I use for picnics and also just for my family and we have it to snack on for a couple of days. It is pretty much the way my mother made it. Usually I add some type of meat, whether it be tuna, chicken or ham. Picnic perfect recipe.


1 lb. macaroni cooked according to package direction, drained and cooled
4 hard boiled eggs diced
1/2 medium onion diced
1/2 large green bell pepper diced
1 stalk celery diced
2 medium tomatoes diced
1-2 large dill pickles diced (substitute relish if preferred)
1 cup frozen or fresh peas uncooked
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1/2 t. garlic salt
1/2 t. onion salt
1 t. black pepper
1 t. celery salt
1 T. chopped parsley


Prepare macaroni according to package directions. Drain, and run cold water over it until its cool. Shake water from macaroni and place in a large bowl.

Chop hard boiled eggs and veggies. Add to macaroni and stir.

Add mayonnaise and mustard being sure to mix it into the macaroni completely.

Add seasonings and mix well.

Chill at least 2 hours before serving to allow all the flavors to set in.
