When preparing food for a large group, it is a challenge to have enough, but not too much. This guide contains salad ideas for large groups.
I am looking for a receipe for 200 for a macaroni salad for an event which is coming up shortly.

I need a pasta salad recipe that feeds 100 people for my sister's graduation party. Anybody have one?
I know the ingredients, the thing is how much pasta for 200.
Alot of the receipes say 8 oz. no way will that handle. I want to know how many pound boxes of pasta I would need. I planned to mix similiar to above receipe, but amounts is the problem.

I believe that I would call one of the Larger Churches there in Nashville. The ones that serve meals on Wednesday nights.
The person who plans and prepares those meals for such a large crowd would probably be glad to help you with the amounts you would need to buy to feed 50 people. And could probably tell you the best place to purchase your veggies too.
I am planning a salad bar luncheon for 100 people. I need to know how much of the various items will feed this many people.
Thanks for the info. One less thing to stress about! :~)
