World's Greatest Macaroni Salad (Seriously!)

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Park Rangerette

A neighbor shared this recipe 30 years ago and it immediately became a "must have" at every family get-together! Feel free to play around with the sugar & vinegar a little - we like it a little more "zippy" but you can tone it down and make it a little sweeter if you want. This is going to look a little runny when you first stir it up, but the dressing thickens quite a lot as it chills!

Almost everyone liked this at the BBQ. No one could guess the mystery ingredient (condensed milk!)
