Hawaiian Macaroni Salad Recipe


  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups Best Foods Mayonnaise ONLY! Do not use Kraft Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip. In some areas Hellman's Mayonnaise is the same as Best Foods
  • 1 cup whole milk or can also use 2% but not 1% milk
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot peeled and grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring approxiately 4 quarts of water to a boil and add the macaroni. Cook until VERY soft, about 15 minutes.
  • Drain the macaroni and return to the pot. Add the 1/4 cup vinegar and stir until the macaroni is well coated. Let cool.
  • While the macaroni is cooling, combine the mayo, milk and brown sugar. Mix well. Add any desired salt and pepper.
  • Pour this mixture over the cooled macaroni and mix until well blended.
  • After mixing, add in the green onions and carrots. I usually save a little of both to add as a garnish on top.
  • This salad is best if chilled for 2-4 hours before serving.
