You can't go wrong with this classic crowd-pleasing macaroni salad! I made this according to the recipe and it's perfect. Nothing fancy, just good old macaroni salad. A picnic staple! Thanx for porting!
This has always been my favorite recipe and I was so glad that you posted it since it is not on the back of the box! I usually add extra eggs, and I put chopped cherry tomatoes in it too. It is great salad, and everyone always asks for the recipe! Thanks!
