Sweet Amish Macaroni Salad

I'm fascinated with the Amish.  I'm pretty sure I could live the Amish lifestyle without any problems.  Since my family wouldn't be so willing to change lifestyles, I guess I'll just have to stick with trying out a few recipes.  Not sure if this Sweet Amish Macaroni Salad is an authentic recipe, but it sure is tasty.  The first time I made it I shared it with a couple neighbors (it makes a ton!) and they told me it was the best macaroni salad they have ever eaten!

1 pound salad macaroni
4 hard cooked eggs, diced
1 small onion, diced
3 celery ribs, diced
1 small red pepper, diced

2 cups light mayonnaise (do not use Miracle Whip)
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 cup yellow mustard
2 tablespoons dill pickle relish
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon salt
paprika for garnish

Cook the macaroni according to package directions, drain well and place in a large bowl to cool. Combine dressing ingredients and mix well.  Add eggs, pepper, onion and celery to the macaroni.  Stir in dressing and refrigerate for at least one hour.

  1. Macaroni salad is one of my favorites and a big memory from my mother making it. Your recipe is very similar to hers and I will give it a try for the 4th--she always had a big picnic then and this was on the menu. XOXO
