Mac N’ Cheese Salad

Posted on August 14, 2011


This is my daughter’s favorite summer salad.  With the cheese and eggs it makes a great lunch–serve with fruit and veggies and you have a complete meal.

Mac N’ Cheese Salad 

1 lb. elbow macaroni

1 sweet onion, finely diced

8 hardboiled eggs, peeled and chopped

1 can black olives, well drained and sliced

1 1/2 cups cubed cheddar cheese

1/2 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 1/2-2 c. mayo (lite mayo or half yogurt is fine also)

2-3 T. Dijon mustard

Salt & Pepper to taste

Boil macaroni until al dente.  Drain well, rinse, and cool.  Add other ingredients, stirring after each addition.  Add the mayo according to your preferences–a little dryer or a little more saucy.  Your choice.  Let sit for several hours in the fridge before serving.
