Mac salad is one of our favorite appetizers. For Cheat day Friday we found a quick and easy recipe called “Grandma’s Mac Salad”. Feel free to replace any ingredients especially mayonnaise with a healthier alternative. Give the recipe a try and let us know what you think!


  • 1 (12 ounce) package elbow macaroni 1 (5 ounce) can tuna, drained 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped sweet onion
  • 1 (10 ounce) can baby peas, drained
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 hard-cooked eggs, quartered
  • 1 pinch paprika, for garnish


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water.
