Mom's Macaroni Salad
1 lb. rotini pasta (elbows work too, but see note below), cooked, drained and cooled
10 oz jar olives, sliced
1 small onion, finely diced
6 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 1/2- 2 cups Miracle Whip (mayo doesn't taste the same)
3 TBS mustard
3 TBS sweet relish
1/2- 1 tsp celery seed
salt and pepper to taste
Mix pasta, eggs, olives and onion in a large bowl. Add 1/2 of dressing mixture and mix well. Add rest of dressing and finish mixing. Taste for salt/pepper. Add more if needed. Refrigerate w/ a damp paper towel between salad and lid to avoid drying out.
*NOTE* We've found that the only elbow macaroni that works w/o falling apart is the Creamette Jumbo Elbows.
