Sweet N Sour Macaroni Salad

READY IN: 38mins
Recipe by Rita1

My sister gave me this recipe a long time ago.This salad is so good that you won't want to stop eating it. I make it for my family and neighbors and usually end up with an empty bowl. Update:I DO NOT add the cup of sugar called for in the original recipe . It is sweet enough with just the sweetened condensed milk and still very "YUMMY."

This really is so good you want to eat the whole bowl! First off, it makes a lot of macaroni salad, so it's great to take to the church pot-luck or picnic. Like others, I omitted the 1 C. sugar and it was plenty sweet--but with that little bit of tang! I added grated cheese and grated carrot, as others suggest. This is a winner! I"m thinking the dressing would make a delicious fresh fruit salad dressing! Mmmmmm....
