Macaroni Salad

The key to this fantastic macaroni salad is the tang of the Duke’s mayonnaise. Regular mayonnaise just won’t give you that kick. If you cannot find Duke’s in your area, mix a little fresh lemon juice and Dijon mustard into your usual mayonnaise. It’ll be more like Duke’s but nothing, absolutely nothing, is the same as Duke’s.

This macaroni salad really reminds me of a traditional egg salad. Creamy, and crunchy. Well, and it does have eggs in it too.

For a little kick in your salad, add a few pinches (or more) of my homemade Cajun seasoning. Or add cubed pepper jack cheese. Also try my mac and Jack salad and my crazy-good Creole macaroni salad.
