“Everyone seems to love this version of your typical macaroni salad. I have made a few adjustments to an old standard to jazz it up a bit. The corn is the key.” - by Annelle Majeran

"Reviewer asking reference for "creamy salad dressing" - the original post of this recipe named brand "Miracle Whip" as the creamy salad dressing...." See more"
""This is the best macaroni salad I've ever tasted." I heard this statement from several people at my husband's BBQ Birthday Party. My father, a macaroni salad connoisseur, could not get enough o..." See moref it. Yes, the corn is the key, but also the pickle juice really gives it a nice kick. I'd recommend this recipe for any casual party or get-together."
"I know... I hate it when people tweek recipes... what's the point... however I loved this recipe base... it is perfect and everyone always asks for the recipes at parties. I do not care for celery......" See more so I omitted that. Corn would probably be good in it... but I am used to it the old fashioned way... so I skipped the corn. I do not care for onion pieces in salads so i substituted onion powder like I always do. I don't measure out the paprika, I just sprinkle across the top after it's made to give it color and flavor. Awesome recipe, it's the only macaroni salad recipe ever use. This does make tons, just the right size for a party, otherwise cut recipe in half."
