Recipe–Mom’s Macaroni Salad



1 box pasta (elbows, shells, etc)

2 regular-size  tomatoes (or 4 plum tomatoes)

1 cucumber

4 eggs

At least 8 sweet pickles

1 can sweet corn


1/2 onion (optional)

2 cans tuna fish (optional)


Cook pasta. Drain and run cold water over until pasta is cool. Place in bowl. Boil eggs for 10 minutes. Take out of shells and cut up. Add to bowl. Cut up tomatoes, cucumber and pickles and add to bowl. Open can of sweet cord and drain of water. Add to bowl. Add mayonnaise (best if added right before serving).

**Mom and I always make enough macaroni salad to feed an army (which Greg teases me about every time I make some). So, keep that in mind and cut down ingredients accordingly if you want to make a smaller salad. I don’t usually put onion or tuna fish in my salad, but some people like it.


About cdhoose

I'm a mom to an amazing little girl and have another little one on the way. I live in Upstate New York with my fiance and daughter, 2 big, crazy dogs and a 3-legged cat (who has an attitude). I hate know-it-alls, Lindsay Lohan and socks with holes in them. I always seem to get myself into trouble (which entertains my fiance to no end), but I try hard to be a good parent. Also, I occasionally work on scrapbooking the fifty billion pictures I've taken of my kid. And I like ice cream. The end.
