Magnificent Macaroni Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Carole Whitmore

This is a wonderful salad that goes great with everything. I'm not particularly fond of elbow macaroni so I experimented with the shells. Don't expect this to last for another meal. It'll be gone before you know it.

I just finished making this salad. I hope you don't mind--I added about 1Tbl of honey mustard and 1/4 cup sour cream as we like the tang. Anyway, even at room temp, it is delicious. I DO like the idea of the mashed egg yolks. What a nice flavor!! I am going to try your chicken paprikash next. Keep on cookin'
