    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You'll crave this salad once you try it, this also works well with chicken in place of the tuna, please do not omit the sweet pickles they *make* this salad! adjust all amounts to suit taste, plan ahead this needs to chill before serving, cooking time is chilling time

    3. 3
      In a bowl mix together mayonnaise with sour cream, sweet relish (if using) garlic powder, yellow mustard (start with 1 tablespoon mustard) and seasoned salt; add to the macaroni mixture; mix well to combine.
    4. 4
      Season with black pepper to taste.
    5. 5
      Arrange the cooked egg wedges around the inside of the bowl, then dust the top of the salad and eggs lightly with paprika.
    6. 6
      Cover and chill at least 3 hours before serving (the longer chilling time the better!).

      Oh my goodness, what a delicious salad! I halved the recipe in case we didn't like it...big mistake. We ate it all at one meal. The only change I made was to add some small cubes of cheese and to chop up the eggs and mix them in. Thank you for posting this recipe!

      Excellent! The only thing I left out the sour cream and green onions, didn't have any. Will add the next time I make it. DH said it was the best he's had.
