I love to see how others make their cold salads.

I don't make macaroni salad often because my family just isn't fond of it. When I do, I use italian salad dressing, some chopped red peppers, olives, and celery. Sometimes I add chopped hard boiled egg too.

My favorite potato salad is the recipe on the back of Hellman's mayo. YUM!

I add hard boiled egg to both my mac salad and pot. salad...... That is odd i guess..... My mother made it that way, but I never see mac salad in stores or gatherings made that way...
Pot or small mac
eggs
mayo
a bit of mustard
relish
sweet pickle juice (just a little,
ground celery seed.
salt and pepper.
finely diced celery and onion...
I like finely diced pimentos or tomatoes, but dh doesn't ....

When I make potato salad, I mash the potatoes, I leave it a little on the lumpy side and add everything that Lori does...ooppss, I dont add celery seed.

I add to potatos....mayo, mustard, dash seasoning salt,ranch dressing, onion, eggs, pickles...sometimes bacon, celery, & relish. ...then I thin it with a little milk.
sometimes I do the macaroni salad the same way, with eggs,bacon, relish,and celery. then add some ranch dressing to the mayo, mustard and milk.
