Amish Macaroni Salad

My husband is still having trouble eating but he came home a few days ago with a container of Amish Macaroni Salad and he loved it. Since it’s one of the things he’s actually enjoyed eating I want to be sure he has it whenever he wants. I’ve haven’t made it for a really long time so I dusted off my recipe and made a batch today. I’m sure he’ll love it!

This macaroni salad is colorful, tasty, and a perfect side dish for all those summer barbeque meals. It’s a bit on the sweet side so feel free to adjust the sugar to suit your taste.

    1. I really cut back the sugar normally used in this salad. Instead of 3/4 cup I used 1/4. It could probably use even a little less but my husband is starting to be able to taste sweet things so I wanted to make it just sweet enough.

      1. Let me know how it turns out without the sugar. I’m not supposed to eat much sugar either. I’m diabetic but, trying to put weight on my husband, I’ve been really going wild with recipes.
