This is a basic at our house, and we have it two or three times a month. I love the french dressing flavor instead of blah macaroni.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil macaroni until tender.
  2. Drain and rinse with cold water to keep it from sticking together.
  3. Add dressing and chill for at least one hour, or overnight.
  4. Combine mustard, mayonnaise and seasonings.
  5. Add together with remainder of ingredients to the macaroni and mix well.
  6. Better if mixed an hour ahead of eating, so the flavors can blend together.

This was nice. I used dill pickle and homemade French dressing (Honey French Dressing). Would have liked more shrimp - I used a 7 oz can (4 oz drained) since it didn't specify but would use 2 cans next time. I would also shred the cheese instead of cubing and use a little more French dressing. Thanks for the recipe!

This was delicious! I followed the recipe except for the shrimp. I substitued crispy bacon pieces. The whole family loved it so we will definitely have it again. Thank you for sharing!
