    Hi there! I always take a look at “Amish macaroni salad recipes” when I see them. Living in Pennsylvania one of many Amish hubs we can buy it at grocery stores, however I always like to tinker and make my own. I have yet to master the combo, come close, but not exact. Looking at your recipe you have salad dressing as one of the ingredients, but nothing specific on that. What salad dressing did it call for? Or which have you used?

    Thanks so much!!
    Fingers crossed! ☺️

      I’m going to guess based on other recipes I’ve seen, Miracle Whip could possibly be the “salad dressing”

      1. Kevin

        Yes, Lisa, you are correct on that.. Newspapers usually like me to steer clear of brand names yet “salad dressing” is such a broad term that it is confusing so, yes, Miracle Whip is what is meant!

    About the macaroni salad,would it change the flavor a lot if I used mayonnaise? We don’t care for miracle whip.

    1. Kevin

      Mary, use Mayo, I think it’ll taste better that way anyway, a lot of Amish use Miracle Whip, but mayo is fine..
