Recipe by PanNan

While browsing for a pasta salad recipe, I found Inez Willenborg's Homestyle Macaroni Salad. It sounded good, but I didn't have all the ingredients, so I improvised and came up with this one. We absolutely loved it. Thank you, Inez, for the recipe that was the inspiration for this winner.

This is incredible! I doubled the sauce ingredients as I made it the night before the lunch I was going to serve it at and I didn't want it to dry out. It was perfect! I served it with chopped black olives, sliced green olives and mild banner rings as garnish. My guests raved! Thanks for making me look good PanNan!
