Recipe by Loves To Cook but N

A quick and easy summertime salad that is great served hot or cold. A family favorite made for over 40 years.

Top Review by weekend cooker

Made the cold version, and cut the recipe in half. Flavors seemed to be missing something particularly in the dressing. Also I would cut back just a tad on the spam, took some of the macoroni flavor out. Made for Pick a Chef 2012.
