My family did not care for this salad. They said the cheese & the peas did not belong in there. We all agreed that the salad would be so much better w/ macaroni instead of the potatoes. I personally liked the peas & the cheese. Will try it again w/ pasta & add bacon or ham! We have always loved all of your recipies.
This is so good. But, I have come to know that any recipe from this chef is excellent! Hats off to Kittencal for sharing such good recipes with us. Keep them coming!! I make my own macaroni salad with Uncle Dan'sranch dressing packets and I think ranch dressing adds so much to a recipe that normally calls for mayonnaise!
I followed this recipe to the letter, using small pasta shells. Although I found this dish absolutely delicious, the dressing for 3 cups of cooked pasta was way too much. could be cut in half. It's a keeper for sure, though.
Lovely spin on a potato salad...I used grated carrot in place of celery and love tang of the dressing.
I made macaroni salad for my daughter's wedding reception and everyone loved it! It was so easy to prepare. I went to 1/2 ranch and 1 cup mayo, personal preference and I used my mama's homemade pickles in place of the yum yum's. AWESOME! Kitten you never fail me! Oh, and Kitten I didn't low carb it either...lol. Thanks so much!!
Everyone loved this macaroni salad! I can't wait to make potato salad with this recipe. Made exactly as stated and it turned out so good. Thanks for posting!
Another HIT from Kittencal. I know I can always count on you to put up a 5 star recipe! I used Branston Pickle (British) for about 1/2 of the pickle, and I added celery seed - about 1 tsp - and left out the celery cuz nobody in the fam. likes it. I also tossed in a bit of paprika! Thanks for a smashing recipe!!
Very good salad. I was looking for a good noodle salad that wasn't like every other one that is out there and this one fit the bill. I did do about half again more sauce because it seemed a little dry without. Overall very good!
Another home run from Kittencal! My kids loved this recipe made as pasta salad. I used gemelli pasta and pre-packaged shredded cheddar cheese. I used light mayo and light sour cream. Next time I'll use light ranch dressing too, or maybe sub in some non-fat yogurt. My only question is what in the world is yum-yum pickle? I've never heard of it.
Awesome! I didnt do the peas since DH and my daughter dont care for them. I made the recipe with 1lb wacky Mac. Its just so good. DH does not care for Mayo, so I used the Salad dressing kind, Im not going to tell him its in there. lol
