This is a great salad! I like a few more tomatoes in mine but otherwise it was perfect! Thanks.
WAY too much dressing which was WAY too sweet, I did not like the raw onion and cucumbers in it either...but I could substitute more to my taste green pepper and get the same effect. The tomatoes were a nice addition. won't make this again
Was looking for some summer comfort food and this fit the bill. I used a tablespoon of honey instead of sugar. So good.
u r so right !!! this is the best mac salad i ever ate, and i've eaten many.thank you for sharing.it makes plenty for a crowd .my pickey son loved it.said it was the best salad i ever made ,however i gave u the credit.thanks again
Yielded way to much sauce so I will reduce milk and dressing next time. I used mayo instead of miracle whip so the sweetness was perfect.
I love this recipe! I tried it the first way, and felt it was a little too tangy and too much dressing, so I used 1 1/2 cups of Miracle Whip and 3/4 cup of Hellman's mayo, and cut the milk to a 1/4 cup. I also added 1/4 cup of pre-shredded carrot, cut into smaller pieces. I love how simple and refreshing it is, great on a really hot summer day!
made this salad and was really good but i added half of the mayo i think it was too much and added less milk
Very good and easy. After reading other reviews I only used 1/2 the amount of Miracle Whip (still a bit too much I'd say). I used 2 Tbsp of mustard and also substituted the sugar with 1 Tbsp honey. I only had 3 hard boiled eggs and no cucumber. So I used a stalk of celery that gave it a nice crunch. I also added an extra can of tuna. The best thing about this recipe is you can easily change it up and use what you like or have on hand.
