Recipe Redux: Nana’s Macaroni Salad

One of my favorite pasta salad for summertime is my Nana's macaroni salad recipe. It is the perfect side for summer barbecues, cook-outs, and pot lucks.

In my family, a summer cook-out just isn’t complete without Nana’s delicious macaroni salad. It’s been a family favorite since my mom was a little girl, and it gets served at every barbecue, reunion, and get-together all summer long. It’s the perfect side dish for burgers, hot dogs, steaks, tri-tip, chicken, sausage, and anything else you can think of to grill, and it’s actually one of the very first recipes I ever posted on Lulu the Baker!
