"I made the recipe as is, and also thought it was a little bland. I added a couple of teaspoons of French's honey mustard & that helped a lot."

"I love the basic combination of the ingredients. This was exactly what I was looking for in a macaroni salad recipe. However, the final result is just bland. Can anyone give me any tips to boost the taste?"

"I have lots of macaroni salad recipes but this one is a keeper. It was very easy to prepare. My husband liked the hard boiled eggs. I added some chopped celery. Next time I might use dill pickles and juice since we love dill a lot."
