Making Macaroni Salad

For moist macaroni salad, remember that noodles are very absorbent, so either serve your salad right away or only add two-thirds of the dressing. Allow the flavors to blend by chilling the salad and dressing a few hours or overnight. Then add the rest of the dressing just before serving. Keep in mind that the longer the salad sits, the more dressing the noodles will absorb.
