This is so simple! Be sure not to but too much onion in!! I did and ended up picking all I could out to prevent MAJOR heartburn! :)

OK, it was easy. But I don't know what the raves are about because it was dry and very boring. There is SO little mayo in this. It was liking eating bland plain pasta. After I refrigerated some of it, I had to add *quite* a bit of mayo to make it edible as it had dried out so much. This doesn't even make a good base to work with because it's so dry. Sorry, but I don't get it.

Simple but satisfying, serve with a nice green salad for nigh on summer lunch perfection! I find light mayonnaise is just as good as full fat for this..and better for you ;)

WOW! When I posted this I definitely thought it was private, I'm glad everybody likes this!! I can't figure out how to edit this, so I'll say this: 2 tablespoons = two heaps of the big spoon in your silverware drawer. Add salt & pepper (or garlic powder or greek seasoning) to taste. I am an onion fiend, that's why it calls for so much onion. :D

My Mom has made a version of this since we were kids..she uses an equal amount of mayo and miracle whip, and adds canned peas and shredded cheddar. Sometiems she'll use shell pasta instead.

This was a simple yet tasy recipe! Great for a quick lunch (and leftovers the next day). I took another users tip and left out some of the onion; I added some diced black olives, celery salt and salt and pepper to taste! I think it would have been a little bland without the celery salt and pepper...but overall a good recipe! I'll definetley make it again.

Not bad, but definitely needs some spicing up. However, a glance at the recipe should tell you this. There is no reason you can't add some italian seasoning, tomatoes, and pickles, which is what I did. I also chopped up the last few hearts of palm I had in the jar to add to this salad. Served at a bbq today and several people commented that it was good. Thanks for the recipe!
