I know this recipe calls for sweet pickle juice, but I also added some sweet relish because I love it. I thought it was sort of weird to use mayo with Miricle Whip (creamy salad dressing), but they both do have distinctive flavors. Just never would have thought to mix them. I also added some black forest ham chopped up which gave a really nice flavor. Also, honey baked ham works good too. I love corn, but I really just didn't want it in my mac salad. I added a couple of boiled eggs instead. I used smoky paprika which imparted a really nice flavor to me. Now that I think about it, I basically made this the way I make my potato salad except it has mustard in it. Make sure to salt your water when cooking your pasta because you only really get the one chance to get the salt into the pasta. It has a better flavor than adding salt on top of the cooked noodles to me.
