    I searched for info on this product and can find no reference to any salads made by Boar's Head Meats. Can you describe what makes it different so someone might be able to suggest a recipe?

    Are you sure it is actually made by Boar's Head, and not made by the deli department of the store that carries Boar's Head products? The store you purchase your macaroni salad from has to furnish you with a "complete ingredient list" label for the salad if you ask for it.

    Boar's Head Provisions Co inc and Boar's Head Brand make Deli meats, cheeses and condiments (mustards, mayos and sauces). No where in their literature or specs did I find any (commercial or retail) salads. icon_confused.gif

    I wonder is she means Black Bear. The labels are somewhat similar.

    Thats very possible, Steve. It could be Black Bear brand, I totally forgot about them.

    My DH works for Boar's Head, I asked him about this and he said they do not make salads.
    I think she may be getting an "in store made" macaroni salad and thought it was a Boar's Head product. In any event, the store has to supply a complete ingredient label for the salad when asked. Getting the list of ingredients used would be the first step in duplicating it.

    Shoprite is one of many supermarkets that sells Boar's Head products in their deli dept, and I know for a fact that Shoprite makes most of their deli salads fresh on premises from the "corporate recipe book." I also know that there are "regional" differences in how the salads are prepared as well as differences in taste between stores in the same region, because sometimes the deli managers tweak the corporate recipes based on the customer feed back in their store.

    billnit1,
    You mentioned a "sweetness" in the salad, I wonder if they use some miracle whip in the macaroni salad dressing.....that would add some sweetness as opposed to an all mayo dressing. Could also just be the amount of sugar they add to the dressing or maybe a bit of sweet pickle juice. icon_confused.gif

    Some of those do look pretty good, but it's a salad that's wanted.

    This is a small corner deli. They sell store made salads and Boars Head salads. So they say ! .I guess I could ask for a list of ingredants, but I don't speak Packistani and they sure as hell don't speak English..

    I have asked the people in the store and they all say that it comes from Boars Head. They also offer store made and it doesen't taste the same.
    It is not Black Bear as this store sells only Boars Head deli meats. I realize that this does not mean that the macaroni salad is Boars Head but I'm sure
    Black Bear does not sell only it's macaroni salad to this little corner deli.

    Because Boar's Head has no salads in any of its info, plus an employee has said they do not make them, I'd bet on it being some other brand. It's probably sold through the same purveyor they buy the meat from, and that may be where the confusion is. I think the suggestion to get the ingredient list is the best place to start. They do have to supply that info if requested.
