This was good. Made as directed but used Veganaise to make the salad vegan. I liked the addition of celery salt- gave it a different but not unfamiliar taste. I also appreciated it was an easily adaptable recipe- it already didn't come with meat or eggs so I knew omitting them wouldn't affect the taste of the recipe. I'd add a red pepper for color next time, since the green pepper and the herbs made it plain old white and green.

I'm telling you, this is the macaroni salad that I can't stop craving! The fresh parsley takes it over the top. The amounts of vegetables is spot on for the pound of macaroni, although I do add more red onion than suggested. Also I haven't tried it with the celery salt--- been too broke to swing that $6 purchase as this is the only dish in my repertoire that calls for it. The amount of mayo seems kinda dry, but I keep to the recipe because it lends a coat of oil with the occasional clump of dairy goodness---not the traditional mac salad doused in mayo that I grew up on. Give it a try, you will get hooked!

Great basic mac salad! I loved the little bit of heat from the cayenne and the crunchiness from the pepper and celery. My new go to mac salad, thanks for sharing!

Such a great salad. I liked the addition of garlic powder to give a little extra something

Great macaroni salad. I really liked the flavoring of the garlic powder and celery salt. Subtle yet flavorful. I used "Vegenaise" instead of mayo with great results. Yummy!

Totally excellent in every way! I used some sweet red bell pepper and made this the day prior. This little salad sat overnite and was better then any salad I have picked up at the deli, and probably so much easier then driving out. So light tasting, and the crunch of the celery was brilliant! You must make this salad right way...now go on...get into the kitchen and put this easy, beautiful presentation salad together! Made for my PAC baby 2011~

This came out very well indeed. I didn't have the ask for pepper on hand (but I'll add it next time) and I added about 1.5 tbsp of Dijon mustard. I got a yummy classic mac salad that will now be my go to base recipe. If you enjoy pasta salad you'll love this one. :D
