    Karamia's Note:

    This is a great recipe for healthier macaroni salad. Very creamy and lots of flavor. Great side dish to burgers, such as Greek-style turkey burgers, Greek-Style Turkey Burgers.

      Yum! I made almost as directed, but used regular mayo, added a few peas, and ground up the carrots, left out the hard boiled egg. I took this to a pot luck and it was much enjoyed! Thank you Karamia!

      This was so good. I took this to a potluck bachelorette party last night and everyone loved it. It was virtually gone by the time the party ended and there wasn't a big group (we all had seconds and thirds). It really was delicious.

      This was OK for us. I followed the recipe as written other then I used regular mayo instead of fat-free. I also added an extra egg but that was just a personal preference. It seemed to be missing something for us and we thought it needed more "dressing".
