"I like both coleslaw and macaroni salad but I thought this might be really odd to taste. I added green onion and red onion instead of onion. I omitted the green pepper and water chestnuts. I added 2 chopped fine hard boiled eggs to it. In the end I also sprinkled a bit of turmeric to it. This is absolutely delicious! I love it, thanks for the recipe, even if I made it my own. Try it, its sooooo good!"

"Delicious! I made this for a church cook out yesterday and it earned rave reviews. It makes a lot so it is a handy recipe to have on hand when you are looking to serve a crowd. Folks liked the additional vegetables along with the macaroni and cabbage. I used mayonnaise, red onion and green onion along with red bell pepper. It is a very adaptable recipe."

"I served this for 4th of July yesterday. I thought I'd like it better than I did. It made a lot, which was a plus, but it was really missing something in the flavor. I found it unappealing and wished I'd served something else. Inhad 12 people for dinner; people ate it-- I had half a bowl left over. My husband said it was okay, and that he liked it well enough, but I didn't notice anyone really excited about it. Too bad. It sounded like something I'd like.

Perhaps I'd like it with a different dressing. I think the dressing was a deal breaker for me. Maybe I'll try it again but use a favorite coleslaw dressing on it instead. Also, I wasn't crazy about the chestnuts. If I do it again, I'll use chopped jicama instead."

"Fresh taste and crunchy... Yum! I was looking for something a little different -- and this did the trick. I did not add the water chestnuts and reduced the onion."

"Very delicious!!! Substituted green peas for the green peppers and loved it! Used whole wheat pasta & mayo & splenda & seasoned with white pepper & celery salt. Pasta box was 12 oz, so increased amount of dressing by adding some olive oil & more cider vinegar & sweetener & seasonings---perfecto! Thanks for sharing!!!"
