This recipe is so delicious! All my friends love when I make it, and adding little cheddar cheese chunks makes it even better! I will continue making this for a very long time :)

Not only is this macaroni salad now a family favorite, it is so easy to make!!! My family asks me to make it for all of the picnic gatherings...there are never any left overs. I find that if I make it the night before the picnic, it tastes even better, if that is possible. I also have been using the Barilla Plus Elbows...what a difference. Thank you for posting this recipe!
