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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions.
  2. Drain, cool and add all of the ingredients with the exception of the tomatoes.
  3. Mix the dressing ingredients together.
  4. Toss the macaroni mixture with the dressing mixture and refrigerate for 6-8 hours.
  5. Add the tomatoes just before serving.
