RPCookin, you can use Miracle Whip Salad Dressing, it's just not the brand I care for (taste-wise).

This sounds a bit too much Salad Dressing, no?

In addition: How much dried pasta would cook up to only 2 cups of Macaroni?
It's confusing but there's a type of salad dressing that's really mayonnaise with extra flavorings. Miracle Whip is the national brand that most people are familiar with.

When I first created this salad, I found I liked the combination of both salad dressing and Kraft's bottled salad dressing (the Creamy Cucumber Ranch Salad Dressing) mixed together. The combination of both flavors mixed together, tastes so good! Years ago I had used Kraft's Miracle Whip, but today I don't care for it (taste-wise), but if you mix it with a bottled salad dressing, I don't mind it as much. And no... the amount of salad dressing and bottled salad dressing, is definitely not too much, as you are also including the cooked macaroni, the 2-3 cups of cooked chicken or turkey, more than 1-cup of fresh vegetables, plus the 8-oz each of the peas and cheese. As for the mayonnaise, I made it once substituting mayo for the salad dressing, and just didn't like how it tasted. The salad dressing just gives it a bit more zip!

Cindi's Chicken Macaroni Salad [SIZE=4]"This is a really good macaroni salad made with either cooked chicken, turkey, (or) smoked turkey, red bell peppers, celery, onions, peas, colby cheese, salad dressing, and Kraft's Creamy Cucumber Ranch Salad Dressing. Note: DO NOT SUBSTITUTE mayonnaise for the salad dressing in this recipe. The salad dressing gives this salad a bit of a kick, as my daughter would say. This salad is a favorite of my mother-in-law's, and I consider that to be a compliment!"[/SIZE] [SIZE=4]Cindi's Chicken Macaroni Salad[/SIZE] [SIZE=4]2-3 cups cut-up cooked chicken, or cooked turkey, or smoked turkey [/SIZE] [SIZE=4]2 cups macaroni, cooked [/SIZE] [SIZE=4]3/4 cups chopped red bell pepper [/SIZE] [SIZE=4]2/3 cup thinly sliced celery [/SIZE] [SIZE=4]2-3 tablespoons finely chopped onions [/SIZE] [SIZE=4]8 ounces frozen peas, thawed [/SIZE] [SIZE=4]8 ounces colby cheese, cubed [/SIZE] [SIZE=4]1 cup salad dressing [/SIZE] [SIZE=4]1-1/2 cups Kraft Creamy Cucumber Ranch Salad Dressing [/SIZE] [SIZE=4]salt and black pepper, season according to taste [/SIZE] [SIZE=4]In a very large bowl, add all the ingredients.[/SIZE] [SIZE=4]Chill several hours before serving.[/SIZE] [SIZE=4]Yields: 10-12 servings (Or 4-1/2 lbs. of salad)[/SIZE] [SIZE=4]Note: When preparing this salad, I added 3 cups of chicken or turkey, since I like more meat in mine. You can also substitute a mild cheddar cheese for the colby. I think Kraft's Creamy Cucumber Ranch Salad Dressing, makes this macaroni salad taste best, but you can use a regular ranch salad dressing.[/SIZE] 3 stars 1 reviews
