I have a cache of macaroni salad recipes, but one I love if I want to me lazy is the Kraft macaroni salad – its in a box like Kraft Dinner and just as easy to make! Well, let me tell you I have cracked the secret recipe. This cajun macaroni salad recipe tastes just like the Kraft one but homemade – with some added veggies! What could be better!

Ingredients

  • half a bag of macaroni (style of your choice)
  • 2 cups of broccoli
  • 2 cups of celery
  • 2 cups of peppers
  • 1 cup of green onions
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup of mustard
  • 2 tbsp of vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of cajun spice

Instructions

  1. Get some water boiling and cook your pasta.
  2. While you water boils, cut up all your veggies into bite size pieces.
  3. Rinse your pasta with cold water and allow it to cool. I usually leave it in the fridge for a bit (if rushed you can put it in the freezer but don't forget!)
  4. Mix you dressing. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and cajun spice. Combine completely.
  5. Add all your veggies to the pasta. Mix them all together.
  6. Add your dressing mixture and combine thoroughly.
