What is your fondest summer memory? I have plenty, and they all seem to have something to do with family gatherings and food. We used to go to this tiny little cabin where my mother grew up, and where my grandparents still lived when I was born. All of our family came – even though the cabin was tiny, there was lots of outdoor space, and we would have the most amazing BBQ parties in the garden.
It was always a potluck type of thing; my mother and her sisters decided a couple of weeks ahead what each of them would bring. But there’s one thing that always stayed the same.
It was my grandmother’s mac salad. If she hadn’t made it, we would have probably taken her to the hospital, thinking there’s something seriously wrong with her. It was such a staple in the picnic table that we actually reserved a special spot for it every year!
Grandma used the simplest of ingredients (isn’t that what grandmothers always do?) but it still turned out so delicious, that there was never a chance of having leftovers. Even today, I always think of Nana when I’m making this salad!

Quick Tip: Be careful with mayonnaise-based salads when you’re out on a picnic! Always bring a cooler and keep the salad in there, until ready to serve. Return the leftover salad into the cooler.
