The greatest macaroni salad you will ever try. Although it does take a while to make, it is well worth the effort.
"Definitely the best macaroni salad I've ever had. I didn't add quite as much mayo as the recipe calls for because I don't like it quite as creamy. Don't plan on going to a meeting right after eating it though -- spicy onion/garlic breath!"- Artolsav

Add 2 quarts of water to a medum stockpot and bring to a boil. Add macaroni and cook until it is al dente, approximately 9 minutes. Do not overcook the pasta or it will fall apart when the salad is tossed together. Rinse macaroni until cool. Drain well and let it dry out slightly.
Add pasta to a large bowl. Carefully fold in celery, onion, cheddar, Swiss cheese, Parmesan, dill pickles, salami, and black olives. Refrigerate the mixture, uncovered, overnight (or refrigerate for at least 2 hours).
Mix the Lowry's garlic salt, minced garlic, horseradish, white pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, dry mustard and celery salt together. Add to salad. Fold in the pimentos. Fold in 1 cup of mayonnaise to start. Add up to 1/2 cup more of mayonnaise if needed. Refrigerate again for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

MeganBewley 1 year agoIt was just ok for me... I think it was too many textures and flavors for one salad (even after I omitted the pimentos and olives).
