I'm in love !!!!

That sounds terrific; but macaroni salad is not on the menu for a little while yet. I've got about another month on the diet to get down to my target weight and this recipe will be one of the first I make up when I reach my goal!!

Thanks.

I made alot of friends with tis, I made it for supper, but then had my mom try it so gave her lil dish, same for my daughter and suddenly i had none left.

At first when mixing it up i wanted to add more mayo, but the friend that gave me the recipe said not to and she was right. It had enough.
