Mom's Macaroni Salad

This is a unique macaroni salad, with the touch of ketchup added. The final color is a light salmon, but it, truly, is very delicious. Mom M.'s original recipe used smaller portions, but we just cook up a whole pound of macaroni shells and the salad is gone within two-three days. If you give this one a try give it lots of taste tests as you add ingredients and make it your own.

Mom M’s Macaroni Salad

1 pound pasta shells, cooked & rinsed in cold water
5 eggs (2 sliced on top)
1 large dill pickle (dice very small)
3/4 C plus, mayonnaise
ketchup to light pink
2 T. pickle juice
1 red onion (5 thin slices)
salt and pepper to taste

Mix together all ingredients ½ hour before serving.

Recipe Given By: Mom Martens, (quantity of ingredients adjusted)

Hint: Can get dry the next day, add mayo.
