Ingredients

  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups mayonnaise - divided
  • 2 cups whole milk - divided
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bunch scallions - sliced thin (about 5-7 scallions)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrot
  • 1 1/2 cups minced celery

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a roiling boil. Add macaroni and cook until very soft, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain, return the pasta to the pot and immediately toss with vinegar. Let cool ten minutes.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup of the mayonnaise, 1 1/2 cups of the whole milk, the brown sugar, salt, and pepper.
  • Once the macaroni has cooled for 10 minutes, toss with the mixed sauce and let cool to room temperature.
  • Once cool, fold in the scallion, carrot, and celery. Whisk together the remaining 1 cup mayonnaise and 1/2 cup whole milk and pour over macaroni salad. Toss well to coat. Taste and add more salt or pepper as needed.
  • Chill in the refrigerator until cold.
