Macaroni Garden Salad is wonderful anytime.   Macaroni garden salad makes a wonderful addition to any meal, picnic, or potluck. Macaroni salad has been around for years and is a staple in my house all year round.  Ham, bacon, chicken or just about any meat works in this macaroni salad and your friends and family will love it.

2 cups uncooked macaroni
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 carrot, shredded
1 cup radishes, chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
1 small cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 cup mayo
1 cup cooked ham, chopped         
Cook the macaroni according to package directions.  Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.  Add the mayo, along with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and chill.  Makes about 2 quarts of salad.  Keeps several days in the refrigerator.
This salad won’t be around long!   Enjoy!
