"To leftover macaroni salad, I stir in a can of white albacore tuna and frozen peas, then serve it for lunch," notes Florence Burns of Chimacum, Washington. "My husband doesn't care for sandwiches, but this keeps him happy."
THIS SALAD is ideal for one or two people, but I've often increased the recipe to take to potlucks.
For variety, I'll sometimes add chopped pickles or shredded cheese. In summer, fresh tomatoes add color and flavor.

This is the best-tasting macaroni salad ever! When I fix a batch, I serve myself a portion right away because if I wait until I get to the table, I know it will be all gone.—Judith Hunt, Goldsboro, North Carolina
