I don't usually like pasta salads, but this was wonderful. I used half M Whip/half mayo, used medium cheddar instead of swiss, only 2 thick slices of turkey, and omitted the zest. Had to use macaroni and it was fine. Thanks!
This is really good. We'll add some chopped fresh basil next time and we may try a stronger cheese (or Swiss cheese that's not from Walmart!).
What a nice supper salad! I used swiss cheese, turkey bacon and thin sliced chicken breast. I only had macaroni noodles so that's what I used for the pasta. I added a tbsp of catsup to the Miracle Whip and a tsp of sweet pickle relish. I threw some store bought croutons on the top and that was a complete supper for us. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
