Re: WANTED:macaroni salad recipe

my family makes a very basic macaroni salad (easy to add more stuff too, or yummy as it is!)

i dont really have an amount of everything i add, just what we add! sometimes i add more onion if i am in an onion mood, sometimes i leave it out! just depends on what you are feeling like when you make it!

but here are the ingredients!

macaroni noodles (cooked to taste)
mayo AND/OR miracle whip (i like to go 50/50 if i have both on hand... if i only have one or the other i just use one!)
radish (typically about 2-3 radishes diced for 1/2 package of macaroni)
green onion (typically about 2-3 diced)
hard boiled egg (2)
1 can tuna (flake it up into small pieces)

i start with about 1 cup of mayo, and than add as needed... mix everything together (i do this while noodles are still warm)

let sit for at least an hour to blend flavors and let everything get cold... add more mayo as needed (it will dry out as it sits... macaroni will soak up mayo!)

I do macaroni noodles, miracle whip or mayo, ranch salad dressing, dry mustard (although regular mustard would probably work too), green onions, cheese cubes and dill. Any combo of the above works great everytime!

I've also tried thousand islands and french dressing mixed together instead of the other dressings and that is yummy too.

Macaroni salad is really hard to wreck!
