Macaroni Coleslaw Salad - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Macaroni Coleslaw Salad is one you will make over and over. My family absolutely loved this combination and it’s super easy to make and a wonderful addition to any summer gathering. It’s very versatile as you could add whatever vegetables your family enjoys.

Macaroni Coleslaw Salad Ingredients Needed:

Elbow Pasta (uncooked)

Bag of Coleslaw

Red Bell Pepper

English Cucumber

Red Onion


White Granulated Sugar

Apple Cider Vinegar

Dijon Mustard

Sometimes people ask why I like to use English cucumbers in my summer salads but we just love the taste and you don’t really need to peel them, which is very nice. Some ways you could change this salad up:

  • Add cubed cheddar cheese
  • Add green bell pepper too
  • Add water chestnuts
  • Add green olives
  • Could use the bag salad of carrots, broccoli and cabbage to mix things up.

If your family prefers miracle whip then use that, it will still be delicious. You definitely want to chill this salad first it’s so good cold. This salad makes a lot, which is why it is good for a gathering. Great to take to a potluck. We loved it with a pork tenderloin. It was a wonderful meal.
