"Best Freakin' Macaroni Salad Ever!"

Jenna and I made this up today, and when McKaydee tasted it, she said "This is the best freakin' macaroni salad ever! It has pickles AND pasta!" So that's how we named this salad!! Don't be frightened by the sweetened condensed milk, it gives it a sweet flavor that is delish! It would also be a great dressing for cole slaw or as my Cole calls it "ME-SLAW"! Enjoy!!


  • 16 ounces uncooked macaroni of choice
  • 3-4 carrots, shredded
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 can sliced olives

  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Rinse under cold water, and drain.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the carrots, red onion, green pepper, red pepper and celery,pickles,olives, and green onions. Mix in the mayonnaise, condensed milk, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add the macaroni, toss gently, cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. This would be good mad a day ahead of time, stirring it occasionally to blend the flavors. The macaroni will absorb some of the liquid, so don't skimp too much on the dressing!
