Macaroni Salad

An old American stand by… almost everyone loves Macaroni Salad… but traditionally made with dairy.  Here is a tasty and easy vegan replacement.


  • 2 Cups macaroni or other pasta, cooked, drained, cooled
  • ½ Cup of diced celery
  • ¼ Cup of minced red onion (soak it in water to dilute the flavor a bit!)
  • 1 Tbl dried parsley flakes
  • ½ Cup cherry tomatoes chopped (optional)
  • ½ Cup Vegan Mayo (more if you want it more creamy)
  • 1 Tbl of mustard (Dijon pref)
  • 1 tsp sugar (optional)
  • 1½ Tbl apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp salt or to taste
  • pepper to taste
  1. In a large bowl, add in your macaroni, celery, red onion, parsley, and cherry tomatoes.
  2. If you want you can add these “wet” ingredients into another bowl and whisk (its a bit easier to do this) or if you don’t like creating more dirty dishes (like me) just throw it all in too. Add your vegan mayo, mustard, sugar, and vinegar
  3. If you haven’t done this yet, mix the wet ingredients into your pasta bowl and stir until well combined.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste
  5. Add more vegan mayo if its too dry or add more celery if you want more crunch!
