Excellent - the pickle/olive juices do make it, along with the zip of the horseradish! I added some cubed cheddar cheese as well - delish!

Very nice salad. Took the hints from other reviewers and used less mayo than stated. In fact I used only 1/4 cup and that was just fine. Did not need to use any milk. Although I love horseradish I would perhaps use a little less (maybe 1 1/2 tbs) next time. I think that if you use the full amount of mayo, then use also 2 tbs horseradish. Anyway, this was a hit here and will surely be made again. Oh, another thing, maybe we are just too greedy but I do not think this will serve 4-6 people, rather 3. But again, maybe we are too greedy. Made for PAC Spring '08. Thanks for posting.

This was ok. The family didn't like it, although I did. I didn't use the entire amount of mayo. Seemed excessive for the amount of macaroni used. I make a salad similar to this except I add chopped green pepper, celery and onion. I liked the flavor the horseradish gave the salad.

A nice change from the typical macaroni salad. I omitted the eggs and sugar and used much less mayo. The horseradish sauce I used was a little strong so it may have detracted from the other flavors.

I make my macaroni salad pretty much like this but have never written it down. You know how it is- just eyeball everything and pray. People always ask me for the recipe and now when requested I will hand them this one. The brine from pickle juice is a secret that my mother taught me and is essential IMHO in any good macaroni (or potato) salad. Great salad- thanks for putting it on paper for me!

Liked the recipe. Next time I would omit the sugar. Flavor is a bit different from the standard macaroni salad..but it was a hit.

LOVED this macaroni salad, especially the addition of the horseradish. I cut the light mayo back to 1/2 cup and will try 1/4 cup next time in order to cut back on the fat and calories.

I thought 1 1/4 cup of mayo was going to be to much but it was just right. I did not use the horseradish this time as there were to many little kids that was going to be eating this. I also loved the brines that were used and the salty taste when you bit into a gr. olive.
