We recently had 20 relatives over for a barbecue. I came up with the most inexpensive sides I could think of, and this was one of them. I originally found this recipe on All Recipes. I took all the comments that people wrote they would put in it and adapted it into this delicious salad. It makes a lot but we eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a few days. It's that good!

  4. Add chopped ingredients; red onion, celery, carrots, eggs and pimento (or roasted red bell peppers). Mix.
  5. Add macaroni. Stir until mixed. It'll be soupy-looking. But don't worry, it thickens up in the refrigerator.
  6. Refrigerate macaroni salad at least 4 hours or overnight.

If you don't like sauerkraut, drained coleslaw works, just as well.
