The only macaroni salad I'll eat is what my family makes. This is my rendition of my mum-mum's (grandma's) recipe.
1 pound cavatappi pasta, cooked to package specifications (updated from elbow macaroni)
4 ribs of celery, diced
6 sweet gherkins, diced (updated from pickle relish)
4 hard boiled eggs, diced
Mix all ingredients. Mix in dressing (recipe follows).
1 cup of Light Miracle Whip
1/3 cup of yellow mustard
2 tablespoons of raspberry-wasabi mustard (updated from original recipe)
1 tablespoon of sugar
Mix all ingredients with a whisk making sure to dissolve sugar.
Sprinkle top with paprkia.
