Delicious, I didn't use quite as much mayo, but that is a personal preference.
the taste was great, however, it seemed to have too much liquid.

Great recipe to start my Mac salad! I used half the mayo, added various chopped up sweet peppers, red onions, dill, no sugar, no dijon, and used red wine. I had a quick delish side for a potluck bbq! Thank you!
it turned out good, I added grape tomatoes. next time I’m going to half the vinegar

It was a bit sweet, use 1/2 the sugar or don't use any sugar.

used apple cider vinegar, halved the mayo and vinegar, and added tuna. perfect. Boom.

This is my first try at this recipe. Used Hellman's mayo and Grey Poupon. I should've left out the salt, so I added a little more sugar. For the vinegar part I used dry Marsala wine. Now this is MY kind of mac salad!

I love this recipe! My absolute favorite potato salad recipe is Best Foods too! I used apple cider vinegar because I didn't have red wine vinegar and it still came out delicious!

This recipe is quite heavy on the mayo. I'll try it again, but next time I'll halve the mayo & vinegar, double the veggies and use red onion. Maybe some red bell pepper, too.

I like the recipe. I would just add onions, tomato to the recipe. I like to see a variety of colors in the recipe.

I lost this recipe long time ago and I am very happy to find it again. Love the flavor and enjoy the color-did different color of sweet bell peppers for a summer change .orange/red/yellow/and green.

This is pretty much the recipe my Mom and her Mom taught me. The only changes I learned is no bell pepper or vinegar and add finely chopped dill pickle.

Yummy. I added chives. My husband doesn't like mustard so I left it out and I got many compliments on it.
Theresa G. 22 May 2016
This turned out well. I did not use green peppers, a personal taste issue, and added a chopped, seeded tomato for color. I also used half light mayo. I thought it was just a little bland so added some chopped fresh dill and a spoonful of sweet relish. Tasty.

Very simple and easy recipe. Substituted regular macaroni with whole wheat and it tasted just as good.
Margaret H. 24 Mar 2016
I had to double the recipe as I was doing a summer get tighter. but everyone liked it I had two or three people who didn't care for it if I make it again and I will make it again I will cut the vinegar in half it had just a little to much vinegar.
Lela W. 20 Sep 2015
No changes made, was great as is. Will make this for our next family get together! I might add a boiled egg
Becky V. 5 Sep 2015
This recipe I found to be too simple and bland. I livened it up by substituting 1/4 c of the mayo with hidden valley ranch dressing for a little more flavor. Then I added BACON!! because everything is better with bacon. I would also suggest green onion. Delicious!
