I love old fashion recipes as I really enjoy going back to the basics sometimes. Here are some recipes for old fashion macaroni salads that are very good. We had good old fashion macaroni salad. It is still a good recipe for those on tight budgets during our current economic downturn.
2 cups cooked macaroni
1/2 cup diced cheddar cheese
1/3 cup diced green bell pepper
3 tbsps finely chopped onion
1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/4 cup chopped sweet pickle (or sweet pickle relish)
1/4 tsp salt
Mix all the ingredients together. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for
at least a couple of hours before serving.
