I just prepared this dish to take to a party tonight -- it's delicious!  I think I could eat the dressing by the spoonful.  Yum.


i think this tastes best right after making it... if u let it sit in the fridge for awhile all the dressing absorbs into the pasta... still good though


This is AMAZING!!! This is my new macaroni salad recipe... i think i'm in love... everyone needs to try this! Perfect as is... no need to change anything  :)>>>


I love this southern Macaroni Salad I make it for all of my holiday meals, also potlucks and just because! Luckily I read the note about the mustard but I kinda figured it was missing because I know that when my parents made it when I was young they would put mustard in so I had a feeling something was missing. This is a perfect recipe. Thank you.


I am not sure how to edit the recipe at this point but I forgot a crucial ingredient! You also need 1/4 cup of dijon mustard. Mix it in with the other wet ingredients. Enjoy!
