Salad Recipes

Any good creamy macaroni salad recipes?

The only kind I’ve ever really loved was from a place called Pizza Village in Durham, NC which has unfortunately closed. I know they bought it, but none of the kinds I’ve tried from the grocery store taste the same and homemade is never creamy. Does anyone know what brand they used or have a good recipe for creamy macaroni salad?


1 lb. elbow macaroni
1 pt. sour cream
1/2 c. light cream
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 c. to 3/4 c. mayonnaise (optional)
2 c. diced celery
1 red onion, chopped
1 diced green pepper
1 c. shredded carrots
2 tbsp. pickle relish
2/3 tbsp. wine vinegar

Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain. Mix mayonnaise, light cream, sour cream, salt and pepper. Add macaroni and vegetables; toss gently. Add vinegar (amount to taste). Chill. Serves 12-15.
