How to Make My Macaroni and Cheddar Cheese Salad


  1. Prepare macaroni according to package directions. You want to cook the macaroni well, but still firm so it will hold up in the salad.
  2. Mix dressing ingredients, cheese and relish.
  3. Combine all in bowl and chill.
  4. Note: After a few hours, if the dressing is absorbed and the macaroni is dry I just add more m.whip and / or mayo.
