OK it was easy. But I don't know what the raves are about because it was dry and very boring. There is SO little mayo in this. It was liking eating bland plain pasta. After I refrigerated some of it I had to add quite a bit of mayo to make it edible as it had dried out so much. This doesn't even make a good base to work with because it's so dry. Sorry but I don't get it. Read More

WOW! When I posted this I definitely thought it was private I'm glad everybody likes this!! I can't figure out how to edit this so I'll say this: 2 tablespoons = two heaps of the big spoon in your silverware drawer. Add salt & pepper (or garlic powder or greek seasoning) to taste. I am an onion fiend that's why it calls for so much onion.:D Read More

My Mom has made a version of this since we were kids..she uses an equal amount of mayo and miracle whip, and adds canned peas and shredded cheddar. Sometiems she'll use shell pasta instead. Read More

This was a simple yet tasy recipe! Great for a quick lunch (and leftovers the next day). I took another users tip and left out some of the onion; I added some diced black olives celery salt and salt and pepper to taste! I think it would have been a little bland without the celery salt and pepper...but overall a good recipe! I'll definetley make it again. Read More

Very Good Very Basic lunch recipe. Added spices to my liking and served. My kids ages 3 and 4 loved it. I live in Missouri where eating a hot lunch is painful in our weather and this was refreshing because I didn't have to use the stove a lot. Easy and fast. Thank You! Read More
