Mom's Best Macaroni Salad

Recipe from

This is great for your potlock summer dinner and it makes A LOT!  I don't like the texture of the shredded carrots so I dice them.  Or if you want to leave them out all together that's fine too.

Mom's Best Macaroni Salad 

Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Ready In: 30 Minutes
Servings: 16


16 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni
4 carrots, shredded diced
1 large red onion, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 cup chopped celery
2 cups mayonnaise
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Rinse under cold water, and drain.
2. In a large bowl, stir together the carrots, red onion, green pepper, red pepper and celery. Mix in the mayonnaise, condensed milk, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add the macaroni, toss gently, cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. I usually make this a day ahead of time, and stir it occasionally to blend the flavors. The macaroni will absorb some of the liquid.
