Makes: 6 to 8 servings

A flavorful update of a classic picnic side dish. We’ve removed the excessive mayo typical of macaroni salad and added a dollop of sour cream. If you’re going to throw dietary caution to the wind, your mac salad should at least taste good.

Game plan: The macaroni salad can be made up to 24 hours in advance and refrigerated in a covered container. Stir well before serving.
