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
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!
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.
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.
made this salad and was really good but i added half of the mayo i think it was too much and added less milk
