This is one of my recipes featured in Southern Living. A gal named "Dee" made this and brought it to our office about 40 years ago, and it's been my favorite mac salad ever since. She said you can put almost any fresh garden veggie in this and it will work.

Absoltely delicious! So flavorful, I love the taste of tomatoes with the mayo! You can even add thinly sliced carrots or bread&butter pickles into this! Enjoy!
