Macaroni salad is a quintessential American dish. A fantastic side dish, lunch or snack, this American macaroni salad is also great for picnics or potluck events.
Crunchy ingredients like onion and celery pair perfectly with tomato and parsley which add color, and the creamy mustard dressing. This will keep up to 3 days so it is a nice make ahead dish. Such a recipe can be doubled, tripled or even quadrupled if you are expecting a lot of guests.
This is also an economic dish to make, because you can pick up a box of macaroni cheaply. This is a classic American food recipe and anyone will be able to make it with ease because it is very straightforward and there are not many steps to follow.
