I am the poster of this recipe, and I just made this yesterday and tried to pay more attention to the measurements. I would say I used about one cup of mayonnaise, not the 1/2 called for in the recipe. I also did not drain any of the juice from the relish, just added the whole jar in. And I only used 10 eggs (8 in the salad and 2 on top) and 1/2 of a medium purple onion. If you use a food processor on the onion and olives it really saves a lot of time, and also helps cut down on the harshness of raw onion. I also use the big holes on a cheese grater on the boiled eggs. I really have never measured the stuff that goes into this before, so please feel free to eyeball it and adjust it to your own tastes!
Oh dear, I am sorry but I am gonna stretch here and give this 4 stars. First of all, I thought that there were too many eggs. I also thought that there was too much relish. I am used to making my macaroni salad the day before , therefore, I thought that this was dry. I did use a sweet yellow onion instead of red. Hubby liked the black olives, I hated them. I am going to go back to Amish Macaroni Salad . Thank you.
This was a hit at our last church potluck dinner. All I brought home was the empty container. The only changes I made were to use green olives instead of black and to add some chopped celery. Even my husband who usually doesn't like macaroni salad requested that I make it at home so he could have a bigger serving.
This was a great recipe! My church loved it! I did too. I received so many compliments on it. I was suprise how many people prefer a macaroni salad with out the sugary taste. I added a celery for crunch. Will use again
This makes a ton! I used black and green olives for extra flavor. And no boiled eggs on top just because I was serving 50 and it was too much work! But I got lots of compliments and I've been eating the leftovers! Delish! This is my new regular for macaroni salad.:-)
very good macaroni salad. the only changes i made was that i added chopped celery and added scliced olives instead of chopped. i also reduced the eggs to 4. oh and no onion because i hate onion. it is also very yummy the next day my 2 year old and I just ate it for lunch today.
I was good but I added more dressing because it was a little dry and some garlic salt for taste. I also only used eight eggs total five in the salad and three on top. Next time I make it I will add some celery for extra crunch.
