Welcome to my West Virginia kitchen!  Today I am sharing my ultimate guide to creating the World's Best Macaroni Salad!  

This isn't just any macaroni salad, this is a game changing, taste bud tantalizing experience that will elevate you culinary repertoire.  The secret?  Marzetti Slaw Dressing.  Let's dive into this delectable recipe that will have your guests begging for more.  I can't wait to share it with you so...

Let's Get Started!


This macaroni salad stands out because of its unique and delicious dressing.  Marzetti Slaw Dressing provides a perfect balance of flavors that traditional dressings often lack.  The combination of crunchy vegetables and the tangy, sweet dressing creates a harmony of flavors that will impress anyone who tries it. 


Marzetti Slaw Dressing is the perfect blend of creamy, tangy, and slightly sweet flavors that complements the ingredients in the macaroni salad beautifully.  Unlike traditional mayonnaise based dressing, Marzetti adds a unique twist that makes this salad irresistible.


  • 1 lb. of Elbow Macaroni Noodles
  • 1 24 oz jar of Marzzeti The Original Slaw Dressing.
  • 9 Hard Boiled Eggs, chopped
  • 4 Stalks of Celery, diced
  • 1 Red Onion, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp Sweet Pickle Relish
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


  1. Cook the Macaroni:  Start by cooking the elbow macaroni according to the package instructions.  Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process and cool the pasta. 
  2. Prepare the Vegetables:  While the macaroni is cooling, dice the celery and onions.  
  3. Mix the Dressing:  In a large bowl, combine the cooled macaroni with the Marzetti Slaw Dressing.  Mix until the macaroni is well coated.  
  4. Add the Vegetables:  Add the diced celery and onions. Gently fold in until everything is even distributed. 
  5. Season to Taste:  Add salt and pepper to taste.  You can also add a bit more Marzetti Slaw Dressing if you prefer a creamier salad.  
  6. Chill Before Serving:  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.  This allows the flavors to meld together beautifully.


  • Use Fresh Ingredients:  Fresh vegetables add a nice crunch and vibrant color to the salad.
  • Don't Overcook the Pasta:  Overcooked pasta can become mushy.  Aim for al dente texture for the best results.
  • Chill for Flavor:  Letting the salad sit in the refigerator allows the flavors to develop and makes the salad taste even better.


  • Grilled Meats:  Perfect alongside grilled chicken, steaks, or burgers.
  • Picnics and Potlucks:  A crowd pleaser that's easy to transport and serves a large group.
  • Weeknight Dinners:  Serve as a side dish with your favorite weeknight meals for quick and tasty addition.  

There you have it, the World's BEST Macaroni Salad!  This recipe is sure to become a favorite in your household, making every meal feel special.  Try it out for your next gathering or family dinner and watch as it disappears in no time.
