This is *hard* to beat! It gets even better as it sits a few hours or even a day or two. Great recipe! *Enjoy*!

Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I was born and raised in a PA Dutch family and lived in York County most of my life. I moved to the South 4 years ago and the food is completely Amish macaroni salad to be found. Since this is my DH's favorite side dish I was determined to find a recipe for it. I've tried a number of recipes and your's is the ONLY one that tasted like the one from home! I whipped up a batch for my DH's birthday...what a great surprise; you'd have thought I'd given him a million dollars! I followed the recipe exactly as it is written and let it sit a full day...PERFECTION! Thanks again! I look forward to trying more of your recipes!
