Highly addicting and FULL of flavor, this macaroni would easily be at home here in the Deep South amidst some pork ribs or pulled pork sandwiches!


  • 1 lb elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups whole or 2% milk, divided
  • 2 cups mayonnaise, ideally Best Foods' or Hellmann's, divided
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, peeled & grated
  • 1 celery stalk, minced
  • Salt & pepper



  1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Add 1 Tbsp salt and the macaroni; cook until VERY soft, about 15 minutes. Drain and return to pot; add the cider vinegar and toss until absorbed. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together 1 1/2 cups of the milk, 1 cup of the mayonnaise, the brown sugar, 1/2 tsp of salt and 2 tsp pepper.
  3. Once the cooked pasta has cooled for 10 minutes, whisk in the dressing. Let cool completely.
  4. Add the remaining 1/2 cup milk and 1 cup of mayonnaise, along with the scallions, carrot and celery. Stir to combine, then season to taste with salt & pepper. Chill for at least one hour before serving.

Delicious recipe! I never really like mac salads but the key to this recipe is how simple it is, not too many ingredients. I did add an additional tablespoon of sugar and twice as much carrot and celery. I also rinsed the pasta right after cooking in hot water so it doesn’t clump up after chilled.
