I've been looking for a macaroni recipe that I can call my own and I think this is going to be it! I like lots of stuff in my macaroni salad and this one sure has lots of stuff! One tip, though, is to remove some of the tough outer strings on the celery by grabbing them on the cut edge between your thumband paring knife and pulling downward. I also thin the may with a little water and it makes a creamier dressing that doesn't glob up and it also takes less mayo thinned.

Made this as our first spring salad. I omitted the salami simply because I didn't have any on hand. It was great. A nice addition to put into our summer salad rotation and family gatherings.

keep eating healthy

ooooooom,Delicious, I love it so i have not large bowl,haha ....

Delicious! I didn't add olives or celery so it did lack a little bit of the crunch factor, so next time I think I'll add some more pickles and onion :) (PS, if you live in the South, definitely use Dukes mayo.... yum yum!)

why can't you use tuna fish instead of the other meats?

You can use whatever you like. It is your recipe :)

I am going add pepperoni an green olives to mine as well some broccoli sun dried tomatoes maybe some cauliflower but if I don't with all the other things in there it looks good on hot summer day a pasta salad is always good with sandwich or by itself this is for sure a keeper .....

I make this minus the salami and with sweet midget pickles. Boy do I get compliments! I am asked to make it all the time! Next time I'll try it with the salami! umm yum!

i will have to try it.

Has anyone made with Relish? Sounds like it would be a great ingredient for something like this!

I use mustard relish, its yummo!!!

if it sounds good, I say try it...

You presented it real well. I would enjoy eating it because it was OOH SO GOOD!!! Would make it again.

Sounds tasty!

sounds wonderful but I might pepperoni since most kids like that better than salami. Since I love Greek yogurt, I might try that also.

I love it,my aunt made it,and it is better with greek yogart instead of the mayonnaise,and it doesn't even need the salami.

Makes alot, gave my mother half of it. She raved about how good it was. I did not put in salami and I did add one small cucumber just because I had one that needed to be used. It is just me so with all the stuff in this salad I made it my main dish. Will make again for me and mom.

awesome with boiled eggs add, as in potato salad.
