Picnic Macaroni Salad recipe
photo by:kraft
Waaay beyond boring macaroni salad. Bacon, tomatoes and pickle relish add loads of flavor to a picnic-perfect salad that's just the thing for a hot summer day.

this recipe was easy to make - it was very good, but i feel that it has a better flavor served as a warm dish.
I made this for a Memorial Day cookout. It was a flop. Everyone took spoonfuls of it on their plate, and I saw those same spoonfuls go straight to the trash can. I personally thought it was ok, but I asked my family to be honest with me about it. No one liked the combination of mac and cheese with the miracle whip. I don't know if it would have made a difference to use regular mayo instead. Maybe someone else could try it and tell me because this one recipe is going to the recycled paper box.
I made this recipe for Christmas. It is a great year round recipe. The longer you refrigerate it, the better it gets....
I was surprised by how good this taste. I was a little hesitant mixing mac-n-cheese with the mayo and other ingredients but it turned out to be very good. I did not use bacon or tomatoes but added a couple hard boiled eggs. My husband and I invited my sister for lunch the day I made this and we all enjoyed it.
I made this for a work related luncheon and it was an instant hit. I shared the recipe.
Very good and easy to prepare and a most enjoyable salad
This is a very clever recipe using Mac-N-Cheese! I added the sweet pickles and onion after I took out a portion for my son who doesn't like these two ingredients. He liked it alot.
I alway read the comments before I try a new recipe. If I hadn't read the comments on this one I would have used plain elbow macaroni instead of the macaroni & cheese dinner. That's what I get for reading too fast. I tried this one for a picnic and I was pleasantly surprised. I was skeptical because of the mac & cheese dinner and I didn't even taste it after I made it because I was afraid I wouldn't like it. I was dead wrong. I loved it and I ended up eating most of it by my self. I will be making this for a lot of family gatherings. I already know they'll want the recipe.
This recipe is so easy and delicious. Everyone loves it and they always go back for seconds.
This is a family favorite. I also added tuna fish to it...yum!
