Macaroni, hardboiled eggs, minced onion and celery, salt and pepper. Maybe a sprinkle of dill relish.

Basic-macaroni, cooked, drained and cooled under cold water.
Diced celery, onion, red pepper, salt/pepper, handful peas, mayo, tarragon. Kick it up w/addition of shrimp, tuna, ham, shredded cheese, pimentoes. Let your imagination run wild.

If I share... then I will have to kill you :-)
But I make a heck of a macaroni & tuna salad. But make it according your likings. Tuna, Macaroni, mayo,chopped red & green peppers. Chopped celery & unions. Some italian dressing on your macaroni after it drains. Some pickle relish (india). Chopped boiled eggs. Toss in what you like. I like mines cold so I store in the fridge a few hours. My son likes his with crackers.

Macaroni (or small elbow) chopped hard boiled egg, chopped sweet pickle or relish, diced red onion, diced celery, sliced black olives, salt, pepper and mayo. I give my potato salad the same treatment.

I throw together elbow macaroni, diced onion, celery, peppers, pickle relish (with a little pickle juice), mustard, mayo, sour cream, salt, pepper and sugar. Oh yea, I forgot, I add in chopped boiled eggs too.

Cooked Macaroni and Miracle Whip.

It just doesn't get any better than that (or easier)

I use the same recipe for salmon, tuna and potato salad with or without ham. Celery, onions, salt & pepper to taste. Cooked, cooled and drained macaroni, chopped boiled eggs, 3/1 sweet and dill pickles, 4/2 Fat-Free Miracle Whip and Mayo, and a 1 tsp. of yellow mustard. (Sliced black olives and bell pepper, optional.) It is never too sweet, too sour, too wet or too dry.
