This salad was really good. I used 1 1/2 cups of elbow macaroni that was uncooked, boiled it up and threw the salad together at about 11:00 PM last night and let everything mingle in the refrigerator until dinner tonight at 5:30 PM. When I first put this together I thought it was very wet, but after sitting in the refrigerator it was the perfect amount of dressing compared to macaroni and vegetables. I paired with with burgers and a garden salad for a nice summer meal for our son's 3rd birthday party. Thank you E-Money27! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup ~ Jan-June 2013.
I had problems and think I must have misread the macaroni measurement. As written the recipe calls for cooked macaroni, but the result is swimming in mayo and the veggies outweigh the macaroni. I ended up stirring in about double of macaroni. The flavors are fine and it made a tasty salad. Is the measurement really 1 1/2 cups UNcooked? <br/>Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2013.
We really enjoyed this mac salad alongside a sandwich. It's simple and tasty. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
This is a good macaroni salad, just not a great one. I actually am not a big fan of mustard in macaroni or potato salad, so I tried to counter balance it by adding a couple of Tablespoons of sugar. I was like another poster and not certain of the macaroni measurement so just cooked about 1/2 of a one pound box. The dressing mixture relating to the macaroni was okay so I must have been about correct. I will probably add a can of drained tuna fish to the leftover salad which will boost the flavor a bit and eat it for lunch tomorrow. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
