Barbara's notes for this recipe:
Nice change to traditional macaroni salad. Always have to double the recipe and never have left overs.

I remember having this as a kid and I made it for a picnic. Everyone just loved it. I wonder how it would be as the dressing on potatoes for a potato salad

This salad was very nice, except for our taste it had a little too much vinegar. The next time I make it, I will cut back on the vinegar a bit.
Hello, I just printed your recipe, my grandchildre will just love this, and looks like we dont live to far from each other. Thank you

By the way, I tried the recipe with potatoes instead of the macaroni and it was not good. Think the starch of the potatoes did something to the condensed milk,, Don't try it. Stick with the orignal recipe !!!
