This best version of Macaroni salad I have ever tasted.

Top Review by cocktails

I was a bit confused with the directions. It said 4 tablespoons of ranch dressing, then in the directions it said from the packet. I used the dressing. I was a bit too mayo based, but I know with some cut backs, this would be incredible. Great start. I would cut the mayo to a cup, add 4 tbl spoons of ranch dressing, use real garlic instead of powder, and I added some smoked white cheddar, garlic cheese. I will make this again. Thank you!
