Macaroni Salad

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites
I love the versatility of macaroni salad. It can be made as a main dish or a side dish. It goes great with just about any main meal. On Sundays, most people have it with callalloo, rice, and stew chicken. It is also a favourite with bar-b-ques. Everyone have their own style of making this dish, but I like it with lots of vegetables and double the cheese, rich and tasty, especially if it will be my main dish. . I believe you have more fun with macaroni, because the there are so many different types of macaroni available to use. My favorite is the coloured shell, but you can use the ribbon or the small elbow macaroni.
Macaroni SaladMacaroni salad, baked chicken, lettuce salad and tomatoes.


1 pack (300g) macaroni (I used small shell macaroni, but you can choose the type)

2 cups mixed vegetables (corn, green beans, peas, string beans, and carrots)

2 hard boiled eggs

1 celery stalk

1 medium sweet pepper, finely chopped

5 stuffed olives, finely chopped (optional)

1 small onion, grated

1 tbsp. lemon juice

3 tbsp. mayonnaise

1 tsp. sugar

2 tsp. sweet relish

pepper to taste


Boil the macaroni. Please, don’t overcook or the salad becomes almost sappy.
Strain and pour the macaroni in a deep bowl for mixing.
Add the vegetables.
(If you use frozen mixed vegetables, steam the vegetables before using it.
A good way to steam the vegetables is to place them in a metal rice strainer
and place it over boiling water).
Grate the onion.
Finely chop the boiled egg and add to the dish.
Mix the lemon juice, mayonnaise and sugar in a separate bowl and add to the macaroni.
Add the rest of the ingredients and a little pepper for taste, if desired,
and mix well the ingredients together.
Refrigerate the macaroni salad until ready to serve.

Well that’s it for today. I hope you try this recipe and enjoy it. Bye!
