green bell pepper, chopped
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
1 3/4 cups
creamy salad dressing, e.g. Miracle Whip ™
My family LOVES this macaroni salad and they are hard to please. I use mayonnaise instead of salad dressing and omit the tomatoes.
I used half gold tomatoes since my neighbor has a whole mess of them, and it added another color. This was OK but I'm mostly in agreement with those saying it lacks some flavor as is. Miracle Whip has a bit of a tang, but this did not come off in the salad. It took me a bit to figure out that I *think* it might be the milk just killing that natural tang and making it a bit of a dead mayo thing. It seems several are now adding ranch dressing mix to it, which would kick it up a bit, but that's not this recipe. I didn't think of that and had a hard time sprucing it up. As one person said, though, it is a good way to use up cucumbers and I didn't think it was too many but mine were smallish.
At first it didnt have enogh flavor so I added a packet of hidden valley ranch dressing mix to it. That gave it an excellent taste
This recipe was great. This could be a low fat dish. Just substitute low fat mayo and low fat milk and you have a wonderful dish. It sure makes alot so do not double recipe. Next time I think I will use one cup of marconi instead of 2.
This is a keeper!
This was great......I made it for dinner last night, and my husband loved it. The only thing I did different was put some hidden valley ranch dressing into the miricle whip mixture and it was great. I also used grape tomatoes as another reviewer suggested. Was really good. will make again.
this was so great! very easy to make and everyone went back for seconds. i made it with light mayo and 1% milk and it was still delicious. i also sprikled some paprika on top.
Very tasty and easy to make. Added one HB egg, used about 1/2 the dressing and added some seasoned salt - perfect.
Great macaroni salad!
Thank you for the recipe!
It was fresh and quick,
I made this dish for a potluck, a keeper!
