How long can you keep this Macaroni Salad for?
Macaroni salad will keep for up to five days when stored in the fridge in an airtight container. I often make this salad in advance and serving at picnics and potlucks, but try not to leave it out at room temperature (or worse, in the heat!) for very long as the dressing base will not keep very well in the heat.
