The BEST Macaroni Salad Dressing

  • Mayonnaise
  • Condensed milk
  • Vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • Pickle relish with juice

Make the BEST MACARONI SALAD!

  • Cook the pasta al dente.  Because no one likes a mushy salad right? After cooking pasta for 7 minutes, I start tasting a piece at a 1-minute interval until it’s firm and no longer crunchy. Using a kitchen timer always helps.
  • Combine all the dressing ingredients in a separate bowl so you can easily adjust the salt, condensed milk (sweetness), tanginess (vinegar).
  • Make it with your favorite toppings: ham, egg, bacon, chicken, roasted peppers and olives. My personal favorites are bell peppers, onion, pickle relish, cheese, and carrots.
