Classic Macaroni Salad is the one that I always look for at potlucks. With a simple and tasty dressing, too heavy on the mayo or mustard, and full of flavor.
In salted water, cook macaroni pasta according to package directions (al dente is best). When done, drain completely and spread the pasta out on a baking sheet to cool completely.
In a 1 quart bowl mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, and relish.
Add cooled macaroni pasta to a large bowl.
Add the dressing and mix together.
Add celery, pimento, cheese, and any of the add-ins you would like. Mix gently.
Chill before serving.
Calories will vary based on the add-ins you use.
