This Creamy Macaroni Salad Recipe is a real crowd-pleaser. It is perfect for your next patio party but simple enough for a week night dinner with grilled steak and corn. With all the wonderful vegetables the presentation is phenomenal. My late mother in law made a wonderful macaroni salad. She would put small bits of cubed cheese and sweet pickle relish in it. This one is creamier with just a hint of sweetness and plenty of fresh beautiful vegetables!
