Typically, you will find this salad made with a lot more, maybe even double, the mayonnaise that I use. I use 1 cup of mayonnaise and ⅓ cup honey mustard which I think binds everything together without drenching it. It is the honey mustard that keeps everyone coming back for more. They cannot guess what is different about this macaroni salad. I love hard-cooked eggs, and they go perfectly with this Macaroni Salad, so I use six of them. The celery and the purple onion add flavor and crunch.

Everything works together to make this great tasting Easy Macaroni Picnic Salad.
