“This recipe was my beloved late mother-in-law's always requested salad. It is deceptively easy and I still prepare it for my children and family. A few of the ingredients include radishes, green onions, celery and a bit of mayonnaise.”

Excellent! No changes, just seasonal additions. Chopped zucchini, fresh snap peas, cucumber, green pepper....you are limited by your imagination. I also learned on Cook Illustrated to add seasoning to ingredients and let sit a bit (1/2 hour) before mixing in the mayo. Seasonings absorb better to macaroni, instead of mayo. Thank you for sharing.

This is a great recipe. I, too, upped the mayo (Hellman's Mayonnaise because it's the best), and I also added a dash of vinegar to give it a little zing. I added frozen peas, which adds to the color and flavor more than you would expect. It reminded me of how mom used to make it.
