Classic Macaroni Salad

  • 2 cups dry macaroni
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 2/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Begin by preparing the macaroni according to package directions. Do not add any salt. When the macaroni is tender rinse it in cool water and drain well. Next chop and measure the vegetables. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine all of the other ingredients. This is the dressing. Mix it well. Add the prepared macaroni and vegetables. Mix well and chill for 2 hours, or until serving time. This is a good make-ahead dish for pot-lucks and picnics. It’s especially tasty in the summertime. Makes 8 servings.
