Just made it for a BBQ bash and it got rave reviews from my guests! Will make it again for sure!
The perfect recipe. Flavorful & easy. DH gave it 10 stars.
This is the best macaroni salad ever. I've made it a few times and everyone always raves about it. I add a little of Dinosaur BBQ's cajun ForePlay seasoning to it for a little kick. Mmm mm good!
