I have been searching for a recipe for Mac salad that isn't soupy and drenched in mayo. This is perfection. I added some tuna and it was a big hit!

I tried this because my wife usually makes her own style with Miracle Whip which I don;t care for. I followed the recipe and used the real Mayo instead. Her family, which usually likes the Mom made version, loved this. I did add about an extra 1/2 cup Mayo. after being in the fridge overnight. A big Hit!

Just made this and I think it could quite possibly be the absolute best macaroni salad I've ever made. This will definitely become a staple recipe.

I really like this recipe, with the exception of the large amount of sugar. I prefer a heaping tablespoon. Also, variations I like are to add a finely diced jalapeno without the ribs and seeds, a tablespoon of Rick Bayless' Habanero hot sauce (recipe is on his website) and either add or replace a bit of the mayo with a bit of Golding Farms' Vidalia Onion Dressing and a drizzle of GF's Cucumber Dressing, also.
