I really love macaroni salad. 

But, as much as I hate to admit this, I’m super freaking picky about my macaroni salad. 

It needs to be made with elbow macaroni ONLY, must include hard boiled eggs, MUST be made with yellow mustard (NOT DIJON!) and should only be made with mayonnaise. Do not come at me with Miracle Whip. 

My dad is a huge Miracle Whip fan so I’m sure he would disagree but I’m just a mayo girl through and through. 

I also really like lots of crunchy bits going through the salad. That’s why I like to include celery, red onion, bell pepper, and dill pickles – super crunchy and fresh!
