You can add any of your favorite vegetables into the creamy mix. Do you like green peppers? Throw them into your macaroni salad recipe. Like black olives? Toss 'em in there.
Simple macaroni salad recipes allow you to customize your dish the way you like it. If your family doesn't like their macaroni salad with loads of vegetable and just prefers the old fashioned recipe, then they can pick out all of the "healthy stuff." If you want, you could even add chicken, bacon or ham. At RecipeLion we understand that there are picky eaters in every household. We've created a list of 14 Simple Macaroni Salad Recipes that has something for everyone.

We don't know of the origins of simple macaroni recipes, but we do know that they have become an American staple at picnics. Sitting next to the potato salad and condiments, picnics without macaroni salad recipes just pose the question "what's missing from this picture?" And the answer usually is the macaroni salad or forks.

Avoid the confusion and give your family everything they need to have summer on a plate. If you ask us, there's no other better way to enjoy a glorious All-American burger than with a cold serving of macaroni pasta salad. So, put the French fries aside and enjoy some macaroni salad recipes.
