Macaroni Salad for a Crowd.
1 (16 ounce) package uncooked macaroni
8 hard-cooked eggs, grated
1 (6 ounce) can black olives, drained and chopped
1 medium red onion, finely chopped
1 (10 ounce) jar dill pickle relish, partially drained
1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard, or to taste
1/2 cup mayonnaise, or as needed
salt and black pepper to taste
4 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
paprika to taste
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place macaroni in the pot, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
In a large bowl, toss the cooked pasta, grated eggs, olives, onion, and relish with some of the liquid. Mix in mustard and mayonnaise, increasing the amount of mayonnaise as desired. Season with salt and pepper. Top with sliced eggs, and sprinkle with paprika to serve.
This recipe is one of those that is tired and true. Simple yet delicious. The only thing I change is that I often make it with the rainbow pasta, just to add some color!
