I made this salad for my dear Mother today...she loves macaroni salad and especially with lots of cucumbers...I buy the tiny cucumbers with the tiny seeds, that way I don't have to remove them...
The combination of sour cream and mayonnaise makes this salad so creamy good...change out the veggies with your favorites in replace of my selection of you so choose...

Enjoy!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, toss the first 9 ingredients together.
2
Now, add mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, pepper, sugar, celery seed, and red wine vinegar.
3
Mix well.
4
Now, stir in the pasta and mix till well combined. Taste and adjust seasonings to your preference. This is where I add the juice if needed. Stir in cheese.
5
Refrigerate to chill, at least a few hours.

If you like a mac salad that is on the wetter side, after the macaroni absorbs the dressing...you may want to make a batch and 1/2 of the dressing or I add about 1/2 cup miracle whip before serving..

Enjoy!
