Ever since I was a little girl, my Grandma Kay has made the BeSt Macaroni Salad EVER!!! When you ask her what she puts in that salad, she always says "Everything but the kitchen sink!". My Grandma is an amazing cook and I enjoy trying to mimick those same flavors that I have eaten at her home for a long time. This recipe is my closest attempt to Grandma's "Everything but the Kitchen Sink Salad"... I hope you also enjoy it! MMMMM mmmmm Good!
