Retro Macaroni Salad

Retro Macaroni Salad at Miz Helen's Country Cottage

The first time I remember making this salad was in my homemaking class, back in the day when we still had homemaking classes in our school system. I am still making the salad and still serving it in my Covered Pyrex Dish. It is a delicious salad and has gone to many a picnic, and covered dish dinner. When our family gets together it is always one of the favorites, truly a classic comfort salad!

  1. I love macaroni salad and I love classic recipes. I am an old bird and I have been cooking for many years. I do wish they still taught home economics in the schools. It may not have been everyone's cup of tea, but a lot of good things were taught in the classes.

    1. I think they need Home Ec classes back in school also. My youngest granddaughter isn't too knowledgeable or that interested about cooking. That is where my interest in cooking and sewing began.

  2. This is very similar to the one my mom taught me how to make. We don't put in everything you do, and we add chopped sweet pickles - we also add the cheese. I've never known anyone else to put in the cheese, so interesting to see that you have it! It is my favorite. Yum, I will have to make it soon!
