I cut down the lemon juice in teh dressing because of the other review and there is enough mayo and sour cream to make it sour enough as it is. Instead of regular cheddar I used smoked mozzarella cheese. I did have to add a little mayo mixed with milk after it sat overnight because the macaroni absorbed a lot of the dressing. I am going to double the recipe this weekend for a pot luck we're going to.

I thought the dressing was a little tart but it was ok otherwise.
