I have forgotten all about macaroni salad in summer! Now it is on my "to do" list when I get home.

I have a similar recipe that was given to me by my MIL that we love. Doesn't have the sour cream. I'll have to give yours a try for a change. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

I hope you like it Sandi and Jann!

Britney, I just linked up this salad with this week's On Display Monday and two other of my favorite summer recipes as well. Thanks for inviting me! :-)

This recipe was absolutely perfect as presented. Nothing fancy - just plain old yummy, better-than-store-bought, macaroni salad. I didn't have elbow macaroni and substituted 2 cups of small shells, which made me end up with extra dressing. So I added about about a cup of frozen peas, and some broccoli, which upped the nutritional/fiber content, I guess. Really, the base recipe is so great, you could add anything, I suppose! Thanks for putting this out there!

I can't wait to try this! I had an amazing recipe before but lost it, hopefully this one can replace it:)
