Preparation

  1. Drain the macaroni and transfer to a large bowl. While the pasta is still hot, mix in the apple cider vinegar and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together 1 teaspoon of salt, ½ cup (120 ml) of milk, the sugar, and ½ cup (120 G) of mayonnaise.
  3. Toss the mayonnaise mixture with the slightly warm macaroni until well coated. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or up to 4 hours, until fully cooled.
  4. To the cooled macaroni, add the remaining ½ cup (120 G) of mayonnaise, the onion, and carrots. If the pasta appears a bit dry, add up to ¼ cup (60 ml) more milk. Season with the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt and the pepper.
  5. Garnish with the scallions before serving.
  6. Enjoy!
