Makes 8 servings.
2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
1 cup mayonnaise
2 to 3 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish
2 tsp. sugar
3 tsp. red wine vinegar
¾ tsp. ground mustard
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
¼ cup chopped celery
⅓ cup chopped carrot
½ cup chopped onion (red preferred, or you can use 4 to 6 green onions)
2 to 3 whole roasted red peppers, chopped
- Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and rinse with cold water; cool completely.
- For dressing: in a small bowl, combine the mayo, relish, sugar, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper; mix well.
- In a large bowl, combine cooled macaroni, celery, carrot, onion, and roasted red pepper; add dressing a bit at a time (you might not use it all, depending on how creamy you want your salad to be) and toss gently to coat.
- Refrigerate until serving; you may wish to garish with paprika before serving.
