The Famous Macaroni Salad {Aunt Max's Recipe}

9:31 PM
Famous Macaroni Salad, a basic recipe that has been in my family for years and is so simple to make. 



Growing up in the '60s,  I loved going for a weekend visit to my Aunt Max's. She was my Mother's younger sister and a wonderful cook.

What I loved most about visiting her, is that she would make all of my favorites.



As soon as you would walk in the door, you could smell the aroma coming out of her kitchen.

I must say, I can't remember what she would serve with her Famous Macaroni Salad.

All I can remember is that I would eat it until I was stuffed, and it was not unusual for me to eat it for breakfast.  You know how it is when you visit someone -- it always tastes better at their house. 



My aunt kept this salad simple with few ingredients that are how I make it today. It was just the right accompaniment to our leftover Perfect Pulled Pork we made into sandwiches after Easter.
