  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Plain Greek yogurt

Macaroni Salad

  • 8 oz Elbow macaroni dry
  • 2 Eggs hard boiled, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup Red bell pepper diced
  • 1 cup Carrots chopped
  • 3/4 cup Celery diced
  • 1/4 cup Red onion diced
  • 2 tbsp Fresh parsely minced


  • Cook macaroni in salted water according to directions on package (I added about 1/2 tbsp salt to the water). 
  • Drain and rinse with cold water until completely cool. Let drain very well.
  • In a medium mixing bowl stir together mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, vinegar, mustard, honey, and season with salt and pepper to taste (start with about 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper then add more salt after you've added the dressing to the pasta).
  • Add well drained macaroni to a large mixing bowl along with eggs, bell pepper, carrots, celery and onion (if you like to have some color over you salad I like set aside some of the veggies to sprinkle over the top).
  • Pour dressing over top, add in parsley and toss mixture to evenly coat. Serve or store in refrigerator up to 1 day.
  • Notes: If you want an even richer, creamier dressing you can omit Greek yogurt, just use 1 cup mayonnaise and a few tablespoons milk to thin.
    If you don't have Dijon on hand, feel free to use a different type of mustard instead.
    Try it with other mix-ins. You don't have to use those listed. Some ideas include - minced baby dill pickles, pickle relish, bacon, green onions or chives, paprika, capers, cucumbers or tomatoes.
