I came across this recipe at food.com, which Adrienne in Reisterstown had posted the recipe. I slightly tweaked the recipe to suit my taste. The end results... a delicious tasting salad which I would make again.

How to Make Macaroni Salad (Paula Deen's)

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and serve.
  2. Note: After I prepared this salad, I chilled it in the refrigerator for 3 hours, but the salad seemed dry, so I prepared a bit more of the dressing, and added it immediately. What a difference that made. The salad was a lot more creamy, and stayed creamier for several days in the fridge.
  3. Also, when adding a bit more of the dressing, I used, 1/2 cup Hellmann's Mayonnaise 1/2 tablespoon of the mustard, 1/4 teaspoon Morton's Season-All Salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, and 1/2 tsp Lawry's Lemon Pepper Seasoning.
