"EXCELLENT! Just what I wanted: a basic mac salad recipe. I would recommend mixing the mayo and mustard together and then slowly adding to the macaroni, to your taste (I am very particular about the ..." See moreamount of dressing on anything). I used the leftover mixture for deviled eggs and my mac salad was perfectly dressed. This is my new, official mac salad recipe!"
"Grand Slam Mama! After reading the reviews, the only changes I made were decrease the mustard to 1/4 cup, add 4 Tbl apple cider vinegar with 2 Tbl sugar,and a tsp of mustard powder, mixed in 5 choppe..." See mored hard boiled eggs and 3 sliced eggs on top of salad. In my opinion, it really does need all 3 cups of mayo--I started with 2 cups and then had to add the third. I rinsed and cooled the noodles before adding to the dressing. I will keep this recipe forever. I am taking it to a saint paddy's potluck tomorrow. Yo mama knew her stuff! "
"Not a single thing changed, and it was fantastic! I had never made Macaroni Salad before but found myself with a half a package cooked after making Mac n Cheese the night before. This turned out wonde..." See morerful, with a nice kick to it. No weird ingredients -- all staples. Every time I had tasted Mac Salad before, it had no appeal because it was so bland -- this I (and my co-workers) loved. My partner does not care for mustard, so it wasn't a fave of his, but he was the *only* one to say so. *Everyone* else -- about 5 people -- loved it! This is the recipe you've been looking for. It will be in my cookbook for years!"
