Mary's Marvelous (one-legged) Macaroni Salad

Comment on this recipe

Recipe history: Many years ago, my daughter Barb asked me to provide a salad for a potluck meal to be shared with several of her co-workers at a Joslin meat packing plant. I sprained my ankle right before preparing the salad. I was determined to make the salad, so I hopped around my kitchen on one leg, using a kitchen chair for support. The salad was well received. Thankfully, I jotted down the measurements as I assembled the large salad. I have shared the story and the recipe many times since then.
