If you are needing a tasty salad recipe, this Macaroni Salad Recipe will be perfect. During the summer Macaroni Salad is my favorite salad to enjoy. Growing up my grandmother would make huge bowls and we would have it with our lunches for days following. I can recall being disappointed when the last serving was dished up. Summer salads are always part of just about every meal we make at home during the summer. I usually whip up my Quick & Easy Potato Salad. This year my favorite has been my Pasta Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette. I love all the veggies loaded up in a tasty summer salad. nothing beats it.
