Everything Salad

Everything Salad. Have you heard of it already? Actually, it is similar to Filipino Macaroni salad. A friend of mine, Grace, shared this recipe with me. When I first tried it at her daughter's birthday party, I have liked it. Even hubby liked it too. So I asked Grace for the recipe so that I can make my own. It is another great way of serving macaroni on our dinner table. Try it too. This would be perfect for Thanksgiving dinner.

6 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 tsp salt
4 cups cooked elbow macaroni
3 hard cooked eggs chopped
1 1/4 cups cubed fully cooked ham
1 cup (4ounces) cubed process cheese (Velveeta)
2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
1 medium onion chopped
3/4 cup sweet pickle relish
3/4 cup sliced stuffed olives
1/3 cup mayonaise

In a saucepan, combine the eggs,sugar,vinegar and salt; cook and stir over low heat for 10 minutes or until mixture is thickened and a thermometer reads 160. Cool completely stirring several times.

In a bowl. combine the macaroni, hard-cooked eggs, ham, cheese, celery, onion, pickle relish and olives. Stir mayonaise into cooled egg mixture; pour over macaroni mixture. Stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for atleast 2 hours.
