Creamy Macaroni Salad

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"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.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and rinse macaroni under cold water until cooled.
  3. Whisk mayonnaise, sour cream, and evaporated milk in a large salad bowl until dressing is smooth and creamy; stir in seasoning mix until well blended. Mix macaroni, onion, green, red, and yellow bell pepper, celery, and carrots into the dressing until thoroughly coated.

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...

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

This is the mild creamy recipe I have been looking for. (Like the one I find at Sobey's.). The only change I made was using miracle whip instead of mayonnaise. I really enjoyed the subtle flavo...
