"Great "go to" Mac salad!!! U can add ALL kinds of extras. These are ingredients that are typically on hand. Best made the night before IMO. I used less green pepper as I think it overpowers most everything else "

I have never added vinegar to macaroni salad before. I added balsamic vinegar and it gave it just the right taste. I also added cheese and olives. Awesome flavor.

Found this to be a great recipe. Although added olive slices and cheese cubes. I also used balsamic vinegar instead of regular vinegar to give it a lil kick.

Great recipe. I reduce the mayonnaise by half and use the Kraft Olive Oil mayonnaise with peppercorn. I also skip the sugar.

I am normally not a big fan of macaroni salad, but this recipe has converted me! It is to die for! Even my 12 year old who doesn't normally like homemade macaroni salad loves it! Excellent recipe. Thank you!

very good! I used avocado and carrots that i had on hand instead of green pepper and onion. Also added some shredded cheddar. Very easy to make!
