I hope this image can convey how tasty this Amish Macaroni Salad is going to be when you taste it. The recipe uses traditional flavors of old-fashioned Amish cooking like carrot, celery, pepper and onion. Combined with elbow macaroni and creamy dressing, it creates an Amish country fantasy dish!

Cook macaroni in a pot of lightly salted water until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Rinse under cold water, drain and cool.
In a large bowl, stir together macaroni, onion, celery, eggs, red pepper, carrot and relish.
In a small bowl, stir together the salad dressing, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and celery seed. Pour the dressing over the salad and stir until well blended. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
What kind of “creamy dressing” do you use?
Salad dressing or mayonnaise will work!
Have you ever used raw honey in place of sugar? Of course, SMALLER portion.
No, I haven’t, but you can if you like it.
I made my own dressing by combining equal parts of mayonnaise and yogurt with a little bit of mustard, lemon juice, salt and ground black pepper. But you can use any store-bought dressing as well.
What kind of yogurt, plain or flavored
Made this for the second time for a potluck…..brought home an empty dish for the second time! One of the easiest, tastiest macaroni salads that I’ve ever fixed! Thanks for sharing on Pinterest!
You are welcome! 🙂
I love macaroni salad but kind of surprised so much sugar in the recipe—is that a typo?
No, it is not a typo. That is the recipe that I got. I also don’t like sugar in my salads.
I like to use 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream in these kinds of salads. Sooo good.
That is a great dressing, too.
