Crunchy Macaroni Salad Recipe

THIS SALAD is ideal for one or two people, but I've often increased the recipe to take to potlucks. For variety, I'll sometimes add chopped pickles or shredded cheese. In summer, fresh tomatoes add color and flavor. -Ruth Griggs, South Hill, Virginia

"It is so nice to have a recipe for only two people or smaller families!! We love this. Sometimes I add some pickle relish and use mayonnaise instead of Miracle Whip. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It's so appreciated."

"I have never made macaroni salad before but lately I have been craving it so I began looking at some of my recipe sites to find one that seemed to fit my craving. This one matched what I was looking for so I made it. After reading many of the reviews I added two tablespoons of chopped celery and a handful of chopped ham. This recipe fit the bill and satisfied my craving. I love a creamy, sweet, and tangy dressing and this was great! I used dill pickle juice instead of the cider vinegar and it was fantastic! Thanx for sharing!"

"I notice that in 2008 someone wrote that the celery is missing from the ingredients but mentioned in the directions. No one answered , unless they e-mailed the writer. I would like to make this, and would like to add the celery. But how much? To taste?"

"I fixed this last night and it tasted great. The only thing I did different was to cube Coby&Jack Cheese instead of the egg. Very good and easy salad."
