Delicious. I used grapes rather than raisins, as that's what I had on hand. I used 1 cup of elbow macaroni and always use Hellmans mayonnaise, as it is the best.

Very good! Easy to make. When the recipe calls for 2 cups of macaroni is that cooked or uncooked? Two cups cooked really hide the other ingredients. I refrigerated it about 6 hrs prior to serving and flavors blended. Great recipe for a potluck meal.
