Dressing for Macaroni or Potato Salad (Favorite of Grammy)


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup vinegar
  • ½ cup water


Mix eggs and sugar until well blended.  Add vinegar and water and stir with a whisk until well blended.  Cook in microwave, stirring every couple of minutes until thick.  As it thickens it can overflow, so check often.  When thick, remove from microwave and add a large spoon of mayonnaise.

For macaroni salad, I cook about ½ box of elbow noodles.  I chop onion, celery, and add herbs like dill, oregano, celery salt, or parsley.  Add enough dressing to taste and chill. 

Grammy made potato salad using this same dressing.  It had basically the same ingredients except she would add hard boiled eggs and green peppers – Grandma Linda
