I have been making this salad for years. First found it on the back of Golden Grain macaroni package. My family loved it. It has been a hit at potlucks and barbeques over the years. My son's most requested dish. As I reviewed the recipe I found a couple of discrepancies. First the macaroni was a 16 oz.package. Second it called for 1 cup of marinara sauce. At the time the recipe appeared on the package Golden Grain had an 8 oz. Can of marinara sauce on the market.
Terrible, the more we ate the more we didn't like it!
It was delicious. Everyone at work loved it and several asked for the recipe. I think it tastes better the longer it is refrigerated! Yummy!
I agree with "DOLLAR SHORT" about the ingredients in the salad. However, I remember the salad recipe on the back of a 'Salad Macaroni' not 'Elbow Macaroni'. The salad is delicious!!!
I believe this salad was originally introduced on the Golden Grain mac salad pasta package a million years ago :). My mother made it for us as kids and we never let he make any other kind. However, the recipe called for chopped black olives. It's the only mac salad I make and now my daughter makes it as well. It's kind of a family tradition. It's the hit of every pot luck and every BBQ.
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!! Had lost my copy from years ago and now I can make for a party this weekend!! Thank you!!
This salad is delicious. This is a big hit at potlucks or other gatherings. Most people prefer it to traditional macaroni salad. While it's not exactly barbecue flavor, I couldn't think of a better name for it. If you are having doubts, please at least try this recipe. From the ingredients list, it seems strange, but it actually has a remarkably good flavor.
Have been everywhere searching for this recipe, finally found it. It;s soooo good. Lost my original.
