Tips
  • Keep macaroni salad refrigerated in covered container.
  • Macaroni salad does not freeze well.
  • How long does macaroni salad last at room temperature? Bacteria grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 °F and 140 °F; macaroni salad should be discarded if left for more than 2 hours at room temperature.
  • How to tell macaroni salad is bad? The best way is to smell and look at the macaroni salad: discard any macaroni salad with an off smell or appearance or if mold appears; do not taste the macaroni salad first.
