Classic indeed! Wow, I loved this salad, I followed this exactly and even used the optional hard-cooked eggs. The celery and onion really added such a nice crunch and the mayo, mustard, and vinegar made a delightful dressing that moistened all of the pasta up. I would change anything about this, and it is just delightful on it's own. Thanks for posting this, GoldsmithLissa! Made for *PAC* 2009.
Yes, this is the good old classic, crowd-pleasing macaroni salad. I added some extra onions, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. As with most macaroni salads, if it chills for awhile, you need to moisten it by stirring in some milk before serving. Thanx for posting!
excellent recipe. I searched many and this one seemed just right. i doubled the recipe and it came out perfect. I was delighted with the result - as was everyone at our neighborhood potluck!
