    CulinaryQueen's Note:

    My friend Lois brought this mac salad to a barbeque we were having many years ago. I absolutely loved it...and so did everyone else. I simply had to have the recipe. It's high in fat, but that's what makes it taste so good! You could use the 'light' versions of the mayo and sour cream to help cut down on the fat a bit. I use elbow pasta but you could probably use any other small shaped pasta of your choosing. I hope it becomes one of your favorites. Not really sure of how much this makes, so the serving size is a guess. For those of you in the UK, single cream can be used for the light cream.

      Love, love this salad. Easy to put together. It's cool and creamy and the flavor is excellent. I've also added leftover boiled shrimp, imitation crab and leftover roasted chicken and it makes a wonderful lunch or dinner meal served with buttered rolls or crackers and fresh fruit. Would also like to add that peeled, seeded and chopped cucumber along with a pinch of sugar makes a wonderful, fresh addition to the recipe.

      Fabulous! This has a very smooth and creamy flavor that is head and shoulders above anything you could buy at the market. I wondered if it might not be sweet enough but when the flavors had a chance to blend, it was absolutely perfect. We loved this! Thanks.
