Classic Macaroni Salad (Vegan & Gluten-Free)


Picnics and barbecues and friends and family and mayonnaise-salads baking in the sun! Wait. What!? Not on your watch! Classic macaroni salad like mom used to make was so good and creamy, but let’s change it up just a bit. Use a tasty eggless mayo for a light and healthy take on tradition. The gluten-free brown rice pasta used in this recipe cooks up al dente and not mushy. Just add crunchy veggies and a pinch of celery salt and get back to the party!
