After a few changes this is a great "summer salad" to serve for dinner. First boil 2 lg chicken breasts until done in salted water. In same water cook the macaroni, during the last 2 minutes add 1 cup of frozen peas. Drain macaroni & peas, rinse with cold water. Add less mayo (3/4 cup to taste) along with chopped celery, small cubes of cheddar cheese, chopped green onions, dry mustard, garlic salt. A bit of crumbled bacon is good, too. It can even be topped with chopped egg and papricka.

My family really likes this mac salad!! The only thing I do different is I use corn instead of the mixed veggies, due to my husbands preference. I have made this several times (family holidays, work potlucks, and for dinner) and everyone seems to really enjoy it. I usually have to set some aside in a seperate dish just to have leftovers!!!

l made this for our dinner. But l made a little change l didn't put only 1/2 cup of mayonise because we don't want lots of mayo and it turns out great. This is good one my husband like it. We had leftover hubby brought it to work as his brownbag. Quick easy meal especially this summer. Thank you for sharing this. This is a keeper one.
