I am looking for a recipe for Macaroni salad. Nothing fancy. Is it better to use miracle whip, or mayonnaise? Also, I am looking for a recipe for pasta salad. Any recipes would be appreciated. Please list the amount of ingredients used for both recipes.

Drain macaroni and while still warm mix all ingredients except tomatoes tuna and cheese.
Last night I had some leftover angel hair pasta so made some pasta salad with imitation crab meat, it was delicious.
I don't measure anything, just chop everything fine. I like it with about half as much veggies as pasta...finely chopped carrots, onions, celery, peppers, tomatoes, cauliflower. For dressing use sweet and sour dressing or make some up.
I like mine with not much dressing, feel it's better for us. For about 2 cups of pasta, 1 cup of veggies, and one package of imitation crab meat I put in about.
Judy's Macaroni Salad; 3 cups cooked and cooled elbow or similar macaroni.1/3 cup chopped onion,1/3 cup finely chopped celery, 1 1/2 cups frozen tiny peas, thawed, 1/2 tsp celery seeds(optional),1/2 cup Miracle Whip and salt and pepper to taste. I sometimes add small chunks of cheddar cheese and/or small chunks ham.You may need to add a little more Miracle Whip if it seems too dry after sitting in fridge for a while. (07/23/2006)
I had a grandmother friend give me this recipe for the salad: Macaroni, eggs, mayonnaise, relish, onion and I add green peppers if I have them. Here is the secret ingredient: a small amount of French dressing. It makes it a pretty orange colored salad and spices up the salad a bit. (07/24/2006)
