Old fashioned macaroni salad is summertime comfort food and is easy to make. You can even make it a few days ahead - it's best if it sits over night. Keep this cold - if you are at a picnic or potluck either keep it chilled or eat it quickly and put leftovers in an ice chest.
I usually double the sugar and the olives because that's how I like it. Make this to your own tastes.
