Julie's Macaroni Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Julie in TX

This is a great summer picnic salad. I first ate it at a family reunion and have changed the original recipe only slightly. I prepare it the night before I want to serve it to give the flavors time to blend. I have also taken it to tail-gate parties where it's been a big hit. I included the cooking time for the macaroni in the prep time.
