Horseradish Mustard Macaroni Salad combines the flavors of horseradish and mustard as it will give it that really nice bite! If you like it a bit less sharp, just add less horseradish. All these flavor combinations take regular macaroni salad up to the next level. If you want to see how I make it, keep reading.
Horseradish Mustard Macaroni Salad
1 lb elbow macaroni pasta, cooked according to package directions and then cooled (I rinse mine under cold water)
1/2 – 1 cup fat free mayonnaise (you can use regular if you want, I like Smart Beat Fat Free)
3/4 cup frozen peas and carrots, thawed
2 stalks celery, diced finely
2 tbsp. red onion, diced finely
2 tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 tbsp. Dijon or regular mustard
2-3 tbsp. prepared horseradish
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
In a large measuring cup add the mayonnaise, horseradish, mustard, salt and pepper and mix well. When the pasta is cooled off add it to a large bowl. To that, add the peas and carrots, celery, red onion and parsley and toss to combine. Add the mayonnaise mixture and stir well. Chill for at least an hour in the refrigerator. Serve.
