Supper on the Porch Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

This was posted in the Idaho Press Tribune from Beth Edwards in Caldwell, Idaho (she submitted her favorite recipe). Never has it crossed my mind to make a macaroni salad for dinner, but it's quick and simple and of course, delicious. I substituted pepper jack cheese for more bite and added some dill pickles marinated in garlic (plus a little juice). Serving size is estimated (it wasn't listed). Thank you Beth for your great recipe!

Yum Yum Yum is all I have to say. I doubled the recipe so I could have some left over, but it everyone loved it and there were no left overs to be had!! I served it with Kittencalskitchen Easy Oven Baked Beans and Pork Chops - Repice # 118821. I put the pork chops & beans in the slow cooker and made the mac salad early. Great easy dinner!!!
