Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m showing you how to make The Best Macaroni Salad I am super picky when it comes to macaroni
salad. It cannot too have much mayo in it otherwise
it ruins the whole thing! It has to have the perfect balance of flavor
and this recipe is it! This is the perfect macaroni salad To start you’ll need to bring a large pot
of salted water to a boil on the stove Cook a pound of elbow noodles according to
the package directions Once they’re finished cooking you’ll want
to drain them and rinse them under cold water until they’re
all cooled off In the meantime we’ll put together our little
sauce for our salad our dressing You’ll need 1/2 cup of mayonnaise 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons of sweet pickle relish Then you’ll need 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard and I’m using stone ground dijon mustard today then 2 tablespoons of sugar 1 teaspoon of salt 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and some fresh dill Mix this all together Now if you don’t like the flavor of dill or
you don’t have fresh dill you can also use parsley in the same amount Just make sure you mince it up nice and small Pour your cooked and cooled pasta into a large
mixing bowl and then it’s time to add in all of our toppings The first thing that I always add in is little small cubes of cheddar cheese I love this addition If you don’t want to spend the time to cube
it up all small you can also just add in shredded cheese We’ll get that in a little pile here Then I also add in half of a diced red onion and you want red onion because it’s meant
to be eaten raw and it’s such a pretty color And then 4 celery stalks that you dice up You want to have all of these a small dice so that they’re all just tiny bite sized pieces And then 1 cup of thawed frozen peas 1 small diced red bell pepper It’s all just so colorful and pretty Last we just need to toss on our dressing Drizzle it all on and scrape the bowl And give this all a toss This is the perfect macaroni salad Not a lot of mayo and a whole lotta flavor! Pop some plastic wrap on top and let it chill
in the fridge for at least one hour before serving Thanks for watching! You can find the full written recipe in the
