Delicious! I also use real sugar rather than the substitute.

This macaroni salad is great ! I followed it according to the recipe except I used 2 tsp of sugar instead of the sugar substitute.

MY REVIEW

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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 19, 2013

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.
