"I made this to take to a potluck on Sunday and it went over very well. I also left out the radishes. The only other change I made was to use gluten free elbow macaroni (the brown rice kind). We thought this salad was delicious!"

"I put in 3.25 cups uncooked macaroni, use canned salmon and 1 cup of each chopped celery, chopped pepper and shredded carrots. I also leave out radishes and reduce pepper to 1/2 tsp. All other ingredients as same in recipe. I make it several times in the summer."
