Amish Macaroni Salad is full of flavor, texture, and fresh ingredients. For a spring picnic or a light dinner side dish, make a big batch of this and watch it disappear!
Macaroni Salad is a staple at outdoor barbeques. I crave it when I head to graduations, summer parties, or any outdoor potluck. Does that stop me from making this recipe on a random Tuesday? Nope. I love this stuff. This Amish Macaroni Salad recipe is so sweet and tangy. My mouth is watering just talking about it.
The base for this dish is Miracle Whip, not mayo (sorry). Mayonaise is great for many things, but make sure you use Miracle Whip for this recipe. It brings out the tangy flavor of this amazing creamy dish.
If you have the time, make sure to let this Amish Macaroni Salad refrigerate for a while (overnight if you can). The chilling process allows all of the flavors to marinate together so nicely.
Tips Tricks and Variations
Can I make Amish Macaroni Salad with Ham?
What the heck, why not! Small chunks of sweet ham might taste pretty good with this dish.
Can I make this with a different type of noodle?
Yes, but I caution from using noodles that get too flimsy. That could make the dish taste a little mushy. I would stick with a more structured noodle like elbow, bow-tie, or fusilli.
