Mom’s Classic Macaroni Salad

by Crafty Lumberjacks

We LOVE any type of pasta salad! Seriously, we can never get enough pasta salad! Think Oprah talking about bread…that’s how we feel about pasta salad.

This is Dennis’ Mom’s go to that got us hooked; a quick, easy recipe with classic flavors!

Mom’s Classic Macaroni Salad
1 box pasta, cooked and drained (we like to use the curly pasta for this one)
1 cup vegan mayo (we like Just Mayo)
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon mustard
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 teaspoon of celery seed

  • In a large bowl mix mayo, vinegar, mustard, celery seed, salt and pepper for the dressing.
  • Add cooked pasta, celery and carrots to the dressing.
  • Mix together, cover and chill.

Please sir, I want some more!

Looks good, and easy to put together too. Family recipes are the best.

This post provide why mess with perfection. Traditional recipes are always the best. No one makes them quite like (insert name here) did.
