“Even the most basic Macaroni Salad can be heavenly...until people start messing with the "formula" by doing vile things such as adding peas, cheese or worse still, Miracle Whip! I much prefer mayonnaise and assiduously leave out the peas and cheese...In addition I've lightened the original recipe a smidge with lower fat ingredients and whole wheat pasta...Serve over lettuce.”
