"This may have some strange ingredients, but it is the only kind of macaroni salad I will eat! It started as a fourth grade experiment on trying to incorporate all five food groups into a simple, tasty recipe."

I loved this salad! Needed a recipe for a pot luck, and decided to try this one. Only changes I made (because of what I had available) was to use chicken instead of tuna, dried cranberries ins...

Awesome! I made one alteration I used ham flakes instead of tuna, because we have people in our family who won't eat tuna. Terrific and easy to make!

Made this for a cook out, made it for 20 people Everyone liked it. Would make it again. Increased the amount of carrot and raisins just for color.
