Make this dish in advance so the flavors can blend and you can focus on the grill. Prep: 15 mins Cook: 15 mins Yields: 4 Servings Ingredients 8 ounces Mueller’s® Elbows 3/4 cup mayonnaise 2 tablespoons cider vinegar 1 tablespoon prepared mustard (optional) 1 teaspoon sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1 cup sliced celery 1 cup chopped green or red pepper 1/4 cup chopped onion 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (optional) Directions 1Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well and set aside to cool. 2Combine mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; stirring well. 3Add cooked pasta, celery, peppers, and onion. Toss well to coat pasta and vegetables with dressing. Cover and chill to blend flavors. 4If desired, top with breadcrumbs immediately before serving. Cook’s Tip: Don’t leave pasta salads with mayonnaise out of the refrigerator for too long. Add a can of tuna to increase the protein and add a new flavor. close full screen 00:00 5 Reviews Wendy B. July 4, 2018 This is good but not the old recipe from the back of the box. I remember the other one having chopped green onions in it. I replaced the bell pepper with chopped green onions and it was pretty close. The dressing is the same except the other one had celery seed in it if I recall. J June 30, 2018 Like Trina above, I too would like the original cold macaroni salad recipe from the back of the box. This recipe is good but there are way to many individuals who do not like peppers in their salads and what happened to the mustard? Seems to me the original recipe called for mustard. Bread crumbs??? Those went out with the seventies! Love your products…the best! Thanks donna hazen June 21, 2018 that macaroni salad recipe is the same one I am looking for. It required dry mustard which makes the salad extremely tasty. Christina MacKinnon June 18, 2017 This IS the recipe that was on the back of the box! Trina Brawner May 1, 2017 This is delicious. I am seeking the recipe, that was on the back of the box of Mueller’s Elbow Noodles years ago. That is the Classic Macaroni Salad recipe I am seeking. However, I did prepare the Classic Macaroni Salad recipe you sent to me and it is delicious. If you still have that recipe from the back of the Mueller’s Elbow Noodles box from many many many years ago, please do sent it to me.
