I made this salad for a family birthday party and it was a HUGE hit! I added some grated carrots to the recipe and it was a great compliment to the other veggies. Also I cut the tomatoes into quarters and it added lots of colour to the salad. My mom said she will never be able to buy macaroni salad again from a store again.
OK - I thought it was a bit bland, but still decent. I think I would have liked the cheese in chunks better. I found a bottle of Beau Monde that said it had onion powder, celery seed & salt, so I just used a mixture of that. But from all the comments about the Beau Monde "made it," I have to wonder if this was correct.
This has become a favorite in my household. We add a tad more cheese--ok alot but we LOVE cheese. I also have to credit the author for my learning to make Beau Monde seasoning, but that's another story! :)
Great pasta salad. I don't like a strong vinegar taste so, I almost left it out. I'm glad I didn't because the salad was great! Kids loved it too! I'lldefinitely keep this one.
I thought this was really good. I made it exactly as written and I think next time I would try cucumbers or peas instead of peppers, but that is personal preference. The dressing is very good and I think that's because of the Beau Monde. I made this salad as a side to barbeque ribs and it was an awesome summer Saturday night supper!
This was REALLY Great !! I couldn't find Beau Monde seasoning to save my life though...so I used dried tarragon. (I have ordered some Beau Monde seasoning from an online store so I am dying to try this the way it was supposed to be made) Crunchy and great !!
I made this for our neighborhood 4th of July party. I had to make a large amount so I simply adjusted the measurements accordingly...in other words I "eyeballed" alot of ingredients! I used frozen peas which I just simply thawed instead of bell pepper as suggested. This salad was the first to go! Everyone raved about it. Thanks Sally for a great and simple recipe. The cider vinegar and beau monde seasoning are the hidden secrets to this great salad!
I will be making this tonight. I had never heard of Beau Monde, so I looked it up. Got a recipe too. I think I will make mine. Here is the one that I found. Recipe for Beau Monde Seasoning Salt: 1 tablespoon ground cloves 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1 tablespoon salt 1 tablespoon ground bay leaf 1 tablespoon ground allspice 2 tablespoons ground pepper 1 tablespoon ground white pepper 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 teaspoon ground mace 1 teaspoon celery seed In a small mixing bowl, mix together all ingredients.
