Amish Macaroni Salad
August 12, 2005

As per other reviewers' remarks I cut the amount of dressing. But pasta absorbs all moisture very quickly, becoming dry. So, if not eating the salad right away, I suggest following the recipe as is (I agree with reducing sugar to 1/4 c.)- add enough dressing to salad to satisfy immediate eating requirements- keep the rest for later. You will need it. Also, another reviewer suggested adding cubed cheese - I don't think cheese adds anything to this recipe it's quite simply excellent as is. Edit: I have now made this recipe dozens of times. Yesterday I bought mayonaise instead of Miracle Whip-type salad dressing - in my opinion using mayo requires more sugar - I used a half cup. Other than that - I'm still making it as above and getting raves from my guests and family.
