Reviews for Bacon Macaroni Salad

"Very good. If this is the main dish, I would not say that it serves 12. More like 6. I like lots of veggies so I tripled the tomatoes and doubled the celery. Really liked it--maybe I'll triple celery next time too. For the bacon, I used scissors and cut the raw bacon into small pieces and then fried it in a large Dutch oven and stired occasionally."
"Made this for 4th of July bbq. after cooking the macaroni I realized it didn't make very much so had to cook up 2 more cups. so if you're bringing this to a party make sure you double the recipe.I added cubed cheddar cheese and a few T. spoons of ranch dressing powder. We thought it was very good."
"I made this dish over the weekend for a pool party and it was a hit! The only thing I did different, was that I added a little more mayo than what the recipe called for and I added some Italian dressing to give it extra flavor. This will definitely remain in my recipe file for a delicious summertime salad. Great combination of flavors!"
"Great salad! I too added some cheddar cheese to it and I absolutely adore the addition of bacon. My husband is not a fan of macaroni salad but he love this one."
"Can't say thank you enough! I was so tired of making my standard macaroni salad and gave this one a try. It was a hit. And thanks to those that suggested Miracle Whip. Will try that this weekend!"
