I have been making this macaroni salad for years, (don't remember where I got it from) and am not allowed to go to any family functions without it. My new husband even requested that I make it for Thanksgiving! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. I usually triple the recipe.

  1. Mix ingredients until well blended; refrigerate.
  2. I usually make this a day ahead so that the flavors meld.

This macaroni salad is absolutely delicious. The Miracle Whip in here really makes the dish, and the fresh veggies add plenty of crunch. I did use celery instead of the cucumber and Miracle Whip Light along with 2% milk cheddar cheese cubes. But you'd never guess the salad was lower in fat! This is tastier (and more colorful) than what you'd find in the deli, & likelier less expensive. Fabulous-a keeper 4 sure!
