How to make it

  • Cook macaroni according to package directions. Mine called for 10 minutes and that is the "cook time" shown.
  • Drain macaroni and run cool water over it until it cools off. Set your colander over paper towels to drain while you prepare your other ingredients.
  • Slice tomatoes lengthwise, then cut each half into 3 or 4 pieces.
  • Chop pickles. Today I used the little tiny whole sweet pickles.
  • Place drained macaroni in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper as desired.
  • Add the mayonnaise and stir to coat the macaroni evenly.
  • Add cheese and mix, then stir in pickles and tomatoes.
  • Chill at least a couple hours, or overnight if possible.
  • Stir before serving. Add additional mayonnaise if needed, or additional salt and pepper.

    Grandma, this is similar to my own recipe...I use sliced pimento-stuffed green olives in instead of the relish. Problem is, I love it way too much, so I don't make it very often! Good post!
