The Best Macaroni Salad. Ever.

And for your eating enjoyment, a recipe. Frugaldad won't eat any kind of macaroni salad with a mayo dressing. Except this one. I used to make it just for me, and then once he tasted it, and now? We both love this one so much.

Supper on the Porch Salad

2 cups elbow macaroni
1 cup chopped cooked ham
1 cup cubed sharp cheese
1 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup chopped bell pepper (red or green)
1/4 cup sliced green onion
2 tbsp diced pimiento
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Cook macaroni according to directions, drain and cool. Mix together with ham, cheese, celery, pepper, onion, pimiento, and relish. In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise and mustard, and salt and pepper. Pour over other ingredients and mix lightly. Chill.

Then try and restrain yourself from eating it all in one sitting. Seriously. It. is. that. good.
