I only made this macaroni salad to use up leftover macaroni for a fun experiment. But I’m not sorry about it. Oh having a party, someone invited 5 extra people, just make this in 30 minutes in case there isn’t enough food. And then forget to serve it and eat it all. The magic here is really in the pickles. I don’t think this would be what it is without pickles. It could also be the Dukes mayonnaise. I once listened to a woman talk for an hour about Dukes mayonnaise. I feel obligated to use it now.
1 cup macaroni
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped hamburger dill pickles, specifically Boars Head
4 ox jar pimentos
Prepare the macaroni as directed and rinse with cold water.
Whisk together the mayo, mustard, lemon juice, and sugar. Add in the macaroni, celery, pickles, and pimentos.
