This really is good. I used reduced fat mayo and cheddar and center cut bacon to lighten it, and it tastes delicious. The white vinegar really gives a little tang to the mayo-based dressing. I did squeeze out some of the tomato seeds and juice for fear of it thinning out the dressing. I agree with the last reviewer, add the bacon right before serving, otherwise, it will get soggy.
Absolutely delicious. Make sure you crumble crisp bacon well and put in close to the time that you serve this salad so it will be nice and crisp. The celery takes the place of lettuce, and the macaroni takes the place of bread. Walla.....you have a BLT
made this for lunch @ work, got rave reviews. Must use real mayo but you can 1/2 it
Okay, this is like the best food ever. The husband, who is not a fan of macaroni salads loved it. I made no changes to the recipe and it was delicious. I was thinking I might add a seeded cucumber next time, but it is perfect as is. Yummy!!!
I used cut cherry tomatoes cut in half and more celery than the original recipe. Everyone loved it! Might turn out to be my favorite pasta salad. Thank you!
Very good Recipes although a little lacking in some mandatory ingredients.
In addition to the above, I added chopped dill pickles and 1 jalapeno chopped and deveined. I used red wine vinegar instead and I also added marinated green olives.
This is the best Macaroni Salad ever!
A really nice twist on pasta salad! I usually make either tuna mac or ham-n-cheese, but wanted a change. This fit the bill perfectly. I did cut back on the vinegar and added a little sugar when whisking the dressing just to cut the acid a tad. Love this recipe, thanks!
I made this as a side to go with Cheeseburgers that my husband made on the grill. Absolutely delicious. I used precooked bacon to make it quick and easy and left out the vinegar. Definitely not a diet food, but what a treat!
