Just made this and the dressing was not thick and too much vinegar and mustard flavor. I


Made this for a picnic this afternoon. Cut way backon vinegar and added to mustard. Also added chopped Chives, green onion, chopped tomato, and some chopped broccoli I had in fridge. I think you could add any fresh garden produce that you would like. Cukes would be very good in this.


I have made enough macaroni salads to know there is a problem with the dressing ingredients. With that in mind, I made this recipe as we like the combination of the other ingredients. My changes were to cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup, and to add equal parts of milk and vinegar, but only enough to achieve the consistency I was looking for. As written it would have been a 1 star - but adjusting the dressing, it was a 4 star for us. **One note - in the submitters write-up, they suggest hard boiling the eggs with the macaroni. That should never be done because of germs that might be on the outer egg shell. Be safe and boil them in a separate pan.
