Love this! I agree with another reviewer; you don't need to cook the peas!

This is similar to one i make.. but i add Broccoli and diced ham to mine and use Miracle Whip instead of Mayo that zippy tang.. this might even be okay with a home made ranch dressing as well.

Recipe was great and super simple. Only alteration I made was, I added 2 tablespoons is sweet relish. This was a side dish the whole family approved. :-) try it, you'll like it.

Thank you for a lightened recipe. It is so nice to see a healthy version of macaroni salad without all the fat dressings. I took this one step forward and used Dreamfields low carb/high fiber macaroni. Delicious!
