I love this recipe! I tried it the first way, and felt it was a little too tangy and too much dressing, so I used 1 1/2 cups of Miracle Whip and 3/4 cup of Hellman's mayo, and cut the milk to a 1/4 cup. I also added 1/4 cup of pre-shredded carrot, cut into smaller pieces. I love how simple and refreshing it is, great on a really hot summer day!
u r so right!!! this is the best mac salad i ever ate and i've eaten many.thank you for sharing.it makes plenty for a crowd.my pickey son loved it.said it was the best salad i ever made however i gave u the credit.thanks again
Very good and easy. After reading other reviews I only used 1/2 the amount of Miracle Whip (still a bit too much I'd say). I used 2 Tbsp of mustard and also substituted the sugar with 1 Tbsp honey. I only had 3 hard boiled eggs and no cucumber. So I used a stalk of celery that gave it a nice crunch. I also added an extra can of tuna. The best thing about this recipe is you can easily change it up and use what you like or have on hand.
WAY too much dressing which was WAY too sweet, I did not like the raw onion and cucumbers in it either...but I could substitute more to my taste green pepper and get the same effect. The tomatoes were a nice addition. won't make this again
I have easily made this recipe at least 15-20 times in the past 2 years since I first discovered the recipe. I do make a few modifications (though it's perfectly great as written!): I omit the tuna and cucumber and add a few stalks of finely chopped celery. I also swap out the Miracle Whip for real mayo and use radiatore-shaped pasta instead of elbow macaroni. Oh and red onion instead of white. I find that the radiatore holds helps to trap the creamy dressing and bits of egg and veggies. I make the dressing exactly as written with the yellow mustard sugar and milk and it's SO good. This is now my go-to recipe and every time I have a potluck or family gathering people beg me to make it. Thank you for such a great concoction!
