A sweet macaroni salad just like Grandma used to make. The dressing is a good basic macaroni salad dressing that you can use with your own macaroni salad recipe. You must refrigerate for at least 4 hours for all of the flavors to blend together.

10.21.19 I liked how the sour cream lightened the heavy mayonnaise taste you often get with macaroni salad, and I enjoyed the addition of the dill weed, which made it just a little more special. This was a bit on the sweet side for us, so I would reduce the sugar and, perhaps, eliminate the sweet relish juice in the future, but this most likely is just personal taste preference. It was a good side dish for some sloppy joe’s for dinner. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I used dill relish instead of sweet. Also, I might add celery next time. Read More
