This Macaroni Salad with Ham and Cheese is super easy to make and is perfect for any occasion. From picnics to potlucks, this blend of tender pasta salad with zesty ham, cheese and other vegetables will be a sure crowd pleaser!
Add celery, onion, relish, mayonnaise, ham, peas and carrots and cheese.
Just make sure to note that this recipe does take at least 4 hours (or overnight) in the fridge for all of the flavors to properly mingle. So make sure you factor in this time to your prep schedule. Also, I find it helpful for recipes like this to have a nice large bowl to mix everything in. Nothing is worse than all these ingredients spilling out everywhere!
And, like all great recipes, this one can be added and subtracted from. Some people like to put diced bell peppers in their Macaroni Salad. If that is your jam, go for it! I've seen some versions of this recipe where people like to use Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise. Again, give it a whirl!
