I left out the bacon and tomato; substituted chopped dill pickle for the relish and added sliced green olives. I refrigerated it overnight. It was kind of gummy like leftover Kraft Mac and Cheese usually is. I like Kraft Mac and cheese so just add a little milk and heat it in the microwave. My company I was expecting couldn't make it so I warmed the salad to room temperature in the microwave with some milk then added a can of tuna, some cottage cheese and cubed cheddar cheese. This was really good. I would make this again intending it from the beginning as a tuna macaroni salad.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I made this for a Memorial Day cookout. 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I decided not to add all of the dry cheese from the box. I decided not to add all of the dry cheese from the box. I did add chopped green pepper for flavor and color. I also used a package of the pre-cooked bacon which eliminated a step. I just cut it up with my kitchen shears. Next time I will add more mayonaise to make it a bit creamier. This was very easy and very good. Any favorite food could be chopped and added, be it meat or vegetable. Just use your imagination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found this recipe about 8 yrs. I found this recipe about 8 yrs. ago and make it every summer over and over. Everyone loves it! Try adding a little celery salt...I seem to remember the original recipe had that. I just shake and taste til it's perfect! My kids will eat it warm while I'm trying to put it away and IF there is any left...by day 2 it's perfect! also i just use sweet relish instead of the pickles..just another time saver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge hit at a BQ party, people ate my salad more than others! Huge hit at a BQ party, people ate my salad more than others! I was Alittle freaked out about using cooked, powered cheese box thing. So, I undercooked noodles and drained tyne mixture so salad wouldn't be runny. Also as suggested previously, I used less mayo. Great dish, not same-o-same-o

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I served this dish warm. I served this dish warm. The taste was peculiar-it was almost sour. I'm not sure if it was the crispiness of the onions, the sweet of the relish or the sour of the mayo, but the different tastes in this dish did not blend well together. I would not try this dish again.

I made this recipe for a family picnic, like a previous person suggested, I also added a couple of boiled eggs. This is a great recipe. I was a little skeptical about the mac-n-cheese, but when it was cold the flavors blended beautifully. great salad.
