Stephanie's Macaroni Salad

Stephanie's Macaroni Salad

I used to attend a lot of potlucks and cookouts with various youth group functions and team parties. This macaroni salad is my go-to. I've had many rave reviews and requests. The key to this recipe is to make it creamy.


  • 1 box small elbow macaroni
  • 1 1/2 c mayo/miracle whip
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 c sweet relish
  • 1/4 sugar (or 4 packets sweetener)
  • 2-3 carrots, chopped
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 8 eggs, hard boiled, chopped
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • salt, pepper, basil, paprika to taste


  1. Cook macaroni according to package instructions. Drain. Rinse with cold water until cooled.
  2. Blend all ingredients in a large serving bowl.
  3. Add macaroni to bowl.
  4. Fold macaroni into ingredient mixture until well coated.
  5. Season to taste.
  6. Refrigerate (At least 4 hours for best taste).


This should be a creamy recipe, so after refrigeration, add a little more mayo if needed.
