Cookout Macaroni Salad (Frugal Food Thursday)

Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday!  If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below! 

These recipes are also listed at these wonderful linkup parties - thank you to all the hosts for allowing me to link up!

It's summer, which means it's time for cookouts!  My whole crew loves when we can eat hamburgers or hot dogs for dinner.  Here's a simple and cheap macaroni salad side dish to go with those yummy summer meals!

Here's the recipe:


1/2 lb dry elbow macaroni
1/2 onion, finely diced
2 carrots, finely diced
2 celery ribs, finely diced
1 red pepper, finely diced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain in a colander, rinse with cold water, and drain again.

In a large bowl, combine the vegetables, mayonnaise, mustard, and spices.  Mix well.  Add the cooked, cooled macaroni to the bowl and mix until well blended.

Put in the refrigerator for 1 hour to allow flavors to meld.

There are lots more easy and cheap recipes posted here at Frugal FolliesClick here for the list!
