Everyone knows the infamous American Macaroni Salad served at almost every American barbecue! And now I’ve found a scrumptious recipe! It’s quick and simple to make, with flavors that the whole family can enjoy!

Left it in the fridge for a few days and still tasted amazing even better cold and when left to soak in the spices.
Used bow pasta instead of macaroni shaped great flavor!
Did exactly what Lily said! made this for my hubbys barbeque Saturday where the whole fam comes over and it helped to cool down everyones tongues after trying the spicy asian wings ! loved that recipe too so would recommend it too.
Very filling it's not your average lightweigh salad, this is more like a full on lunch which is perfect for when you work all day :) I recommend adding a few cucumbers too for a crunch.
Never thought I'd be a salad person up until I found this website, this is the second best salad I've ever made that is fast and easy, the fist one being the vegan kidney bean salad..that one is zesty and delicious too!
I prefer it without the sugar i think its a little healthier without it and also no need for salt i think if you want to make it fully healthy dont add so much of those and no sugar.
Delicious and simple salad really enjoyed it 10 stars if I could give.
Sourcream is not a must when it comes to this recipe I used a bunch of cheese instead (melted it in microwave)
Made this yesterday and added a bit of hot sauce on the top for a spicy kick to wake me up in the AM lol.
Colorful plate and tasty made it on Easter.
Feeling full and satisfied from this salad though instead of tomatos i put cucumbers and some sundried tomatos in mine.
Crowd pleaser for sure whole families tummy was filled up (-:
Wouldve rated this a 5 but it was kinda bland and the tomatoes overwhelmed the plate.
Was a hit even added a few diced pieces of tofu. for an extra taste.
