Wow! This is a great salad. I added chopped chicken and we had it for a meal. I made the dressing as directed but used 1/2 olive oil mayo & 1/2 plain non-fat yogurt. The lemon juice made it tangy. I didn't put the dressing on until ready to serve, to prevent soggy lettuce. Next time I may add some avocado. Definitely a keeper!

YUM! What a nice change from your basic macaroni salad or tuna macaroni salad! I loved it and give it a 5***** rating! My family would too if next time I cut back on the onion a little bit...they're not real big onion fans...Anyway, for a refreshing change and welcome addition to our summer menu, this recipe joins the ranks! Thanks! ----Martha

This is the first recipe I've tried from this site and I'm very impressed. It got a huge thumbs up from three of us in the family, including my husband, which was a bit suprising. The other three, my young picky ones,rated it as good. Definatly a keeper recipe that I will make again. I think I'll add a bit more lettuce next time.

My aunt gave me this recipe, with the addition of 1 TB of bbq sauce. It's good.

This was soo good and easy to make. I loved it, I did however add a few things. I added celery, avocado, fresh mushrooms, and I used red onions not green ones and added pepper at the end. I added one sliced egg on top of my husbands because he loves eggs but I did not put it in the whole salad! I left everything else the same, it was amazing! Great for a hot summer day!

What can I say about this recipe that hasn't already been said? I made this using mayonnaise, a spinach and zucchini pasta, and halved grape tomatoes. I did not mix in any lettuce, as this is a great stand-alone pasta salad without it. The flavor is really excellent and it makes a satisfying side dish. I will definitely be making this again!

I really enjoyed this recipe! I made a few changes after reading this book by the Skinny Chef. It's called Healthy Cheats. Here's the link if anyone wants to check it out: http://amzn.com/B00AKWI47Y

Great salad. Be sure to rinse the pasta with cold water before adding the other ingredients. Also I use red onion and more bacon that the recipe calls for.

This salad is wonderful! I was looking for something different for a potluck dinner bbq, and found this recipe. At first I was worried when I saw the amount of lemon juice, that it would be sour, so I did add maybe an extra tbsp of sugar. But, once it's all put together it is delicious. Even my kids, who are sometimes picky, loved it. Definately will save this recipe to make again...Thanks!
