    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult.

      Very good! I only made 1/2 lb macaroni but everything else was the same. (with using only 1/2 the pasta its a little soupy) I personally think it has to much vinegar but its still good. I also used healthy harvest whole grain pasta. Will make again. Thanks for posting. Made for 123 hit

      This just didn't thrill me. For one thing, it needed WAY more mayo/vinegar/mustard than the recipe states. Otherwise, it would've been dry as a bone. I think most of us who have any cooking sense at all can do better on our own without a recipe than following this one!

      Don't wait for a picnic to make this mararoni salad! Delicious- not overly dressed. I did add a fair amount of sugar, but I like my macaroni salad pretty sweet. I also added some black pepper. A half recipe made enough to serve 5. Thank you!
