“After discovering this recipe I never make macaroni salad any other way. I sometimes used canned white chicken. After reading the comments on the dill I want to mention that the original recipe called called for 3 tablespoons of dried dill! Can you imagine.....I would change the name to dill salad!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta according to directions.
  2. Put frozen peas in colander and drain pasta over peas.
  3. In large bowl mix mayonnaise and vinegar.
  4. Add pasta and peas and mix well.
  5. Add remaining ingredients mixing well.
  6. Taste to adjust seasonings.
  7. Place in fridge for flavors to blend (or eat as is if you can't wait).
  8. You might want to add additional mayonnaise after salad has been refrigerated, because some of the mayonnaise will "soak" into pasta.
  9. *This is the amount of vinegar the original recipe calls for -- I have been cutting down to one tablespoon.
