Macaroni (mac) salad is a staple in Upstate NY. You’ll find it probably at every social gathering you go to and I think that’s the only place were a lot of restaurants offer it on their menu as a side.
Here’s my Mom’s tried and true recipe. I’m not giving specific measurements for the ingredients…it’s all up to you and your taste. Prepare a few hours before serving to let the flavors meld. It’s so simple, but so good! Enjoy!!
1 lb. box of macaroni cooked, drained and cool
Diced and seeded cucumber
Diced bell pepper (I prefer red or yellow)
Green onions sliced thinly w/ some of the greens
Mix all ingredients together. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Taste before serving and add more mayo, etc. if needed.
