Memorial Day Barbecue Recipes: Macaroni Salad

May 21, 2014

Macaroni salad from Picture Perfect Meals is an all American barbecue classic.  While macaroni salad always seems to make an appearance at the table it's hardly ever the star.  Most of the time the macaroni is overcooked and overwhelmed by a tasteless mayonnaise dressing.  Not this version. Elbow macaroni is combined with celery, red onion, carrots, peas and more to turn this plain jane side dish into a showstopper.  A tangy buttermilk dressing flavored with spicy pickle juice and garlic and onion powder bring this whole salad together.  With this recipe, your macaroni salad will be the highlight at the barbecue.
