This macaroni salad is great ! I followed it according to the recipe except I used 2 tsp of sugar instead of the sugar substitute.
I rarely make macaroni salad because of all the carbs. Now I will make it more often as this version is delicious. The only thing I changed was to use 1/2 mayo and 1/2 yogurt. Everything else was the same.
This is excellent! My husband loves it and asks for it often. Sometimes I get adventurous and add something different to it but overall this is perfect just as it is.
I have been making this recipe since it was first published & have never been tempted to try any other since. I use 1/4 tsp. onion powder insteadf of chopping an onion & I omit the egg (just lazy). It is still awesome.
I needed an update on the old mac salad and this recipe is now on my to make list. I used sugar instead of the substitute and I chopped the egg into the salad. We both thought it was excellent!
