This easy classic Macaroni Salad recipe with pickles is the perfect make ahead side dish for summer potlucks, picnics, and parties! This version is packed with more veggies than other recipes, including peas, corn, and bell pepper, with pickles and pickle juice for flavor and green onion for a more subtle taste than more traditional red onion. It’s delicious for days left in the fridge, making it perfect for leftovers and for making ahead of time!
This classic macaroni salad has all the creamy taste you love about macaroni pasta salad from the mayo-based dressing, with additional sweet and tangy flavor from pickle juice, dijon mustard, and just a touch of honey added to dressing.
Frozen corn and peas are added directly to the boiling pasta water and it’s all drained together, saving on time and dishes and adding some healthy, nutritious veggies to the mix.
The chopped dill pickles and diced red bell pepper add an awesome crunch and punch of flavor to the macaroni salad, WITHOUT making it soggy after even 3-4 days in the fridge. You’re going to LOVE how easy this is to make, how delicious it tastes (especially after the flavors are allowed to marry for a little), and all the veggies packed into it!
