Macaroni Salad With Ham

I love a good macaroni salad. Growing up, I remember all the cookouts we had. Mom grilling hamburgers and hot dogs. She usually had macaroni salad, potato salad, chips, soda and all the fixings you would expect at a family cookout. Many times we would have a cookout at the lake, which was fun. The kids would swim for hours. When dinner was ready, mom would yell “kids dinner is ready”. After we ate, right back in the water we went, swimming until sunset. At sunset we would pack it up and head back to the house.

Still today, I enjoy a cookout with family and friends.

I took my mom's recipe and adjusted it, just a little. I added the ham and changed the seasonings. Taste good!
