    Oolala's Note:

    Can be made ahead, kid friendly, quick and easy. I got this from a pasta website. Nice to make for a BBQ or summer side dish. It's a crowd pleaser! For a full 1 lb. (16 oz.)box of pasta, just double the recipe. I usually make this with regular mayo and milk since that's what I have in the house.

      This is a good classic macaroni salad recipe. The base of it tasted great. I did not have celery but I added chopped roma tomatoes and added a spoonful of sweet pickle relish, then I read the other reviews and saw that someone added cubed cheddar cheese so I added that too. I think it will be my "staple" macaroni salad recipe.

      Really good and easy. Didn't have celery, so left it out. Sprinkled with seasoned salt, very tasty!

      This is a pretty good basic recipe. I used half of the mayo, omitted the milk, used apple cider vinegar and used peas and corn instead of the peppers and celery. It made a really nice creamy salad. I will use this recipe again :)
