Creamy Macaroni Salad

Mandy Franke

"I have looked all over for a great macaroni salad; this one is it! It's easy and is a huge hit at every function I take it to. The sauce for this is a great creamy sauce. I like my salads to have a lot of creamy dressing, so I always make an extra half batch of the wet mix and add it as necessary to get the salad more wet because the pasta soaks up the sauce."

  1. Mix salt, dry mustard, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, white pepper, and black pepper in a small bowl.

I love it! I used canned Mexican table cream instead of evaporated milk.

It's the creamiest I've ever made. Delicious! I would make this again.

This is the 1st macaroni salad recipe, that did NOT call for vinegar, Dijon mustard, sugar, or pickle juice! I don't like any of those, so this recipe works out better! To veganize/dairy...
