    I made this today for a moving party. Tasted it and it is really good. All I changed was not adding the cuccumber. They don't agree with me too well plus what another reviewer said about having the seeds in there. Couldn't find a seedless one right now. I also added some fresh ground pepper. The Dijon mustard really gives it a kick. Oh and I did add a little dribble of pickle juice. I'll let you know how it goes over.

    I ADORE this salad! I have one recommendation straight away though, I would only use an English cucumber, I think the seeds in the salad would not be appealing. I used elbow mac (Dreamfields, cutting back on carbs) and light miracle whip. I cut the Dijon in half as I am not the biggest mustard fan. For the salt I used a smoky seasoned salt and added some pepper. For added crunch, I added minced onion and finely chopped celery, and some roasted red pepper for color. I also suggest the sitting overnight. The cucumbers keep this salad very moist and fresh tasting. A winner for sure!

    I thought this was a nice, uncomplicated salad that uses simple, basic ingredients I keep around all the time. I used low-fat mayo and upped the dijon mustard just a bit. This made a very enjoyable lunch. Thanks for posting a great recipe.

    This salad will be served a lot at my house!!! The only change I made was to use light Mircle Whip instead of Mayo. This will go well with our BBQ's this summer! Thanks Marsha!
