Mom’s Macaroni Salad

by 247tasty

Whenever I want something light yet still flavorful and delicious, I make my Mom’s Macaroni Salad. It is the best thing ever! Growing up, I witnessed how my mom works in the kitchen. She’s a great cook, not a professional but I think most moms know how to prepare a decent and amazing dishes and she’s not an exemption. She likes to experiment, most of the time she prepared dishes, treats that we’ve never seen or heard before. Ahh, I miss my mom so much! She taught me almost every recipe I know. Like this macaroni salad. It is such a simple salad, very easy and quick to make. The ingredients are readily available, uncomplicated, and easy to find. This is a straightforward salad that will give you what you expected and more. It is refreshing and creamy. It might look like your usual macaroni salad, still it will not disappoint you. Every bite reminds me of my childhood, my mom, and how amazing mother’s are. I am never gonna be contented with just a scoop, I always find myself coming back for more! It is perfect when paired with grilled steak, hamburger, even hotdog. Our weekend backyard barbeque will never be complete without my Mom’s Macaroni Salad.
