Recipe: Macaroni Salad with Peas

I love macaroni salad, but wanted something a bit lighter. I looked through a lot of recipes and combined the best of all, and added my special touch--this was a big hit even among folks who dont normally like macaroni salads. The peas are the real surprise.

Macaroni Salad With Peas Reviews

  • 4.25.20 The peas certainly are a nice addition, but the surprise and star IMO is the dry mustard. That little zing that you get from the dry mustard makes it distinctively different from any macaroni salad that Ive ever made. We liked this a lot and like that its lower in calories and fat than most other mac salad recipes. Thanks for sharing your recipe, we enjoyed it.

  • No changes. I loved it.
