How to Make Old Fashioned Macaroni Salads

I love old fashioned recipes as I really enjoy going back to the basics sometimes. Here are some recipes for old fashioned macaroni salads that are very good.

AF MACARONI SALAD

I call this recipe my Air Force Macaroni Salad since the recipe was given to me by a lady who worked in a restaurant in New Mexico when I first went there as a young Air Force bride in the 1960s.

2 cups cooked macaroni
1/2 cup diced cheddar cheese
1/3 cup diced green bell pepper
3 tbsps finely chopped onion
1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/4 cup chopped sweet pickle (or sweet pickle relish)
1/4 tsp salt

Mix all the ingredients together. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours before serving.

1/4 cup chopped onion
