My Granny's Macaroni Salad

My Granny's Macaroni Salad

My mother-in-law is a great cook and I've shared her macaroni salad recipe. It's so delicious you'll want to keep it secret.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Boiled macaroni (curly-type)
100 g
Potatoes
1 small
Boiled egg
1
Carrot
1 small
Cucumber
1
Mayonnaise
3 to 4 tablespoons
Salt and pepper
to taste

Steps

1. Boil the macaroni a minute longer than the package directions state, then drain, rinse in cold water, and drain again.
2. Thinly slice the cucumber and rub with two pinches of salt (not listed). When wilted, squeeze out the water.
3. Boil the carrots and potatoes until soft. Cut the carrots into quarter rounds and peel the potatoes.
4. In a bowl, add the potatoes from Step 3, the boiled egg, and mash.
5. Add the following ingredients to Step 4's bowl in the order listed, mixing each time. Macaroni → Cucumber → Carrot → Salt & Pepper → Mayonnaise. Continue to mix, then you're all done.

Story Behind this Recipe

My mother-in-law is a wonderful cook and I wanted to pass on this flavor she created for my daughter to keep it going, so I posted this recipe.
