Macaroni Salad

The hubby has requested this salad since were were married I think. I had some leftover ham in the fridge so I decided to attempt this recipe. It really wasn't an "attempt" as it's a pretty simple recipe, but this was round two on it!

The first time I made this I didn't have his mother's recipe and he just didn't think it tasted right so after that I learned, always get the original! I bugged his sister and she delivered so I had the actual recipe this time.

I'm proud to say his whole face lit up when he saw that I had made this salad. This salad must be his favorite because he even remembers his mom made it for graduation! He then quickly dished himself an entire bowl and snuck off to the basement to watch his "shows" and enjoy the salad.

This would be perfect for all your summer grilling and time at the lake!

Sounds like a great recipe to try! Please forgive me for sounding dumb, but I have a few questions...1-when you say "salad dressing", do you mean mayonnaise? 2-by "mustard", do you mean just the regular yellow mustard? 3-what is your favorite brand of season salt? Thank you!

Salad Dressing - I used Miracle Whip, but it's a personal preference and you can also use mayonnaise!
Mustard - Is yellow mustard. Not the dry mustard.
Seasoning Salt - My favorite is Lowry's, but each to their own!

Hope this helps!
