This is not your usual macaroni salad....there is no Miracle Whip in this. When i first saw it i was a little put off because of the looks of it, but was sooo surprised when i tasted it!!Glad i did! Tasty & a nice change.(I put 1 day for cook time as this is best made ahead of time,i am guessing on servings also as it depends on the appetites and the venue!)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large mixing bowl, combine your macaroni& diced veggies.
  2. (first 6 ingredients.) In another bowl, combine sauce ingredients, blending well.
  3. (or combine them in a covered container and shake well.) Pour sauce over the macaroni& vegetables.
  4. Mix well& chill.
  5. This can be made up to a day before for fullest flavour.
  6. Great for a BBQ!
  7. May be kept 3-4 days in refrigerator.

I made this salad to take to a pool party today. It was a nice change from the usual mayo or Italian dressing macaroni salad. Everyone really enjoyed it. I will certainly make this one again. Thanks for posting.

I first had this at my parent's house and was pleasantly surprised! Add a couple of tins of shrimp or some fresh cooked shrimp, lobster or crab and it's fabulousness increases exponentially!
