This macaroni salad is garden-fresh tasting with its unique blend of shredded carrots, cucumbers, and radishes. The buttermilk dressing has a garlicky dill flavor. This was clipped out of Ladie's Home Journal magazine about 20 years ago.

Very flavorful! I used a tablespoon dried dill and a tablespoon dried parsley. I might try it with less dill next time. I wish it were a tad healthier so I might experiment with reducing the amount of mayonnaise. I used rotini because it looked so appetizing in the picture.

I enjoy using buttermilk and we do like this but first felt it needed an extra something. I added some sliced black olives, celery and apple sausage - it was pretty good. Tonight my husband added a small amt of horseradish and he said, "perfect!" I will make it again but add our little touches.
