I really liked this salad. It was so good. It was crunch and creamy, and I especially liked the Tarragon vinegar in it. It is a simple and easy salad to put together. I made it just like you directed. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

This is delicious. We loved it! It was a wonderful addition to our crockpot pork roast sandwiches. Wonderful! I will be making this again. Thank you for a great recipe.

My DH loves the macaroni salad at the deli because it has cheese in it. I searched the recipes here and lo and behold I found your version and it was a big hit. I followed the recipe exactly. It has a very creamy texture and the cheese gives it extra flavour. Will definately make again.
