The Best Vegan Macaroni Salad

The Best Vegan Macaroni Salad Recipe

By Hot For Food

🔪Prep Time: 16 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 8 minutes


3 C macaroni

3/4 C caesar salad dressing (or creamy cucumber dressing)

1 1/2 tsp dijon mustard

2 tbsp vegan mayonnaise

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1/3 C finely chopped celery

1/3 C finely chopped carrot

1/3 C finely chopped cucumber

1/2 C finely chopped red onion

1/4 C finely chopped basil

1/4 C finely chopped cilantro


1Cook the macaroni noodles until al dente and rinse under cool water. Drain well.

2Combine the noodles with the vegetables and herbs in a large bowl.

3Add vegan mayonnaise, dijon mustard, and ground black pepper to whatever dressing you’re using or combining! This will just give it a bit more creaminess and tanginess. BUT taste it! It might need more acidity in which case add a little bit of apple cider vinegar. This is totally customizable. Remember I just made this up on the spot using leftovers in the fridge, so you can adjust to your liking.

4Pour the dressing over the noodles and vegetables and toss until well coated. Refrigerate until ready to serve. This could be made the day ahead for the flavours to really mesh together!
