Dressing ingredients were various combinations of some/all of the following: mayo, sour cream, Dijon mustard, dry mustard, pickle juice, cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, sugar, milk, yogurt, and I can't even remember what else.
So. Many. Options.
We'll definitely make this again, maybe even adding some chopped egg next time. And some day I'll convince him that sliced green olives are delicious in macaroni salad.
1 lb elbow macaroni, cooked and cooled
2-3 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 4 oz jar pimiento, drained and roughly chopped
8 oz extra sharp cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes
1.5 c. mayonnaise (Hellmann's)
2 Tbsp mustard
1/4 c. sour cream
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp sugar
salt & pepper to taste
Whisk together dressing ingredients. Add dressing to bowl with macaroni, celery, pimiento, and cheese. Mix together. Add salt & pepper to taste.
