Hey Adrienne, this salad was a pretty good, but I noticed after chilling the salad for 3 hours, the salad seemed dry, so I prepared a bit more of the dressing and added it immediately. What a difference that made. The salad was a lot more creamy, and stayed creamier for several days in the fridge. When making the salad, I cooked the macaroni seperately, plus I boiled the eggs seperately. I only added 1/2 cup of thinly sliced celery, 1 small green onion, plus a 2-ounce jar of diced pimientos, which I drained on paper toweling. When adding a bit more of the sauce, I halved the dressing, but only added 1/4 teaspoon of the Season-All Salt. I think this salad would taste great adding either chicken or shrimp to it, so that's what I'm going to do the next time I make this salad.
Excellent Salad!! Found the "Copycat Lawry's Seasoned Salt" #17051 recipe to substitute for the "Season-All Salt". Also, didn't have on hand the honey dijon mustard, so substituted country dijon mustard & 1/2 teaspoon sugar. Did find the salad tasted better after it was chilled for an hour. This salad recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.
Exceptionally good! Used cooked frozen peas instead of celery as I'm not much of a celery fan. Other than that followed the recipe exactly. The honey dijon is a nice touch. Gives it a bit of tang and hint of sweetness, but not overly so. Definitely a keeper!
Super simple macaroni salad that tastes delicious! Hubby almost licked the bowl and went back for thirds! That's rare!!! I added half pound deli ham, one cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese and an extra egg. I also used half cup mayo and half cup light sour cream. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! (I suggest substituting celery with peas, hubby's request for next time!!!)
So very good!! Had it for our meal last night, My hubby loves macaroni salad, and I have always made his Mom's tried and true recipe, but tried this last night, was a BIG hit, and I will be making it again and again!!
The best macaroni salad I have made! Best if made the morning that you plan on serving this great dish! Add extra dressing, yes that is the way to go!!!!!!
I'm sorry Paula Deen -- but this macaroni salad was horrible. I had to add pickles, pickle juice, sugar and other things to make this somewhat better -- I will not be making this again.
Delicious. Will be making this again soon.
Tasty but the Season All Salt was a little too strong for my taste. Next time I will add 1/2 tsp and increase from there. Also, salad got a little dry and had to add more mayo and honey dijon mustard.
