Sweet and Creamy Macaroni Salad Recipe


  • 1/2lb elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 cup celery, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup bell peppers, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, finely diced
  • 1/4-1/3 cup red onion, finely diced
  • handful of chopped parsley
  • 2 green onions, sliced

For the dressing

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condesed milk
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 coleman’s dry mustard powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne powder

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Start by boiling the macaroni in a large pot of salted water, until it’s cooked through. I like cooking it a little bit softer than I would for a hot pasta dish, because it does toughen in the fridge when chilled.
  2. While the pasta is cooking. Prep all your veggies and add it a bowl. I finely diced some celery,1/4 red pepper and yellow pepper, some carrots and a quarter of a large red onion.
  3. For the dressing, in a seperate bowl measure out the mayonnaise, sweetened condensed milk, apple cider vinegar, paprika, mustard powder and cayenne pepper.
  4. Stir everything together well until you have a smooth and creamy dressing.
  5. Once the macaroni is cooked, drain and rinse it under cold water to stop it from cooking any further and cool it down.
  6. Drain the excess water and add the macaroni to the big bowl of veggies and mix it all together well.
  7. Pour the as much of the dressing over the top of the macaroni and veggies as you would like and mix it until everything is coated in the sweet and creamy dressing.
  8. Garnish the salad with some fresh chopped parsley and finely sliced green onion and chill the salad covered, for a couple hours or overnight in the fridge.
