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.
- 1Place mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt, paprika, and pepper in a large nonreactive bowl and whisk to combine.
- 2Add remaining ingredients and stir to evenly coat. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
