mama's macaroni salad
what you need
one pound of macaroni (any)
one and a fourth cup of mayo
one cup of sliced black olives
one cup diced cucumber
one whole can of tuna (any)
two teaspoons of celery salt
one teaspoon of pepper
what to do
bring water to a boil and cook macaroni to box directions.
once all of the ingredients are prepped (minus the macaroni)
toss them in a BIG bowl together until well combined
put in refrigerator to chill while macaroni cooks.
once drained and ready, add to mixture.
tip: to make macaroni a little cold and not so hot
run under cold water for a few seconds or throw some
ice cubes in the strainer with it and mix until dissolved.
mix until well blended.
you can eat it right away
or you can let it chill in the fridge.
it's always amazing the day after making it-
so you can make it the night before if desired.
it's a good side dish on a hot day
or over lettuce greens.
I've been eating it this way since I was a little girl
and decided to share with you how my mom makes it.
