Grandma’s Macaroni Salad

Just like grandma used to make! Try Live Well Alabama’s Grandma’s Macaroni Salad for an easy summer meal. Just mix all the ingredients together and chill. This recipe serves eight.

Tips: Use your child’s favorite pasta for a fun mealtime. Try to serve seafood twice a week— it’s simple! Make patties with canned salmon, crab, or tuna or use them in a sandwich. No seafood? Substitute the canned salmon and tuna with chopped deli meat. Tuna paired with whole wheat crackers makes a great snack.


  • 1 8-ounce package elbow macaroni, cooked, drained, and rinsed
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • ½ cup onion, diced
  • 4 dill pickles, diced
  • 1 can salmon or tuna, 5 ounces, drained
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Chill before serving.
