Creamy Parmesan Macaroni Salad is my recipe of the day. It is another of  the mac salads I tend to do very well at making. Probably the reason being all the  practice I have with it. Because I really dislike most store bought mac salads.  They  are usually too sweet  or just weird tasting.

I had intended to  publish my recipe for Easy Slow Cooker  Goulash  today but fell behind and missed my publishing deadline. From there, I pushed it  offshore to post  in another upcoming slow cooker  event.  So stay tuned if you  were looking forward to it.

Instead  I had  my creamy Parm mac salad,  which I cooked the same day I made my Creamy Parmesan Salad Dressing. And  this salad is, in fact,  the reason the dressing exists. Because I needed some to make this salad. And you’ll be needing it too. Unless you  use a jar dressing.  But if I have given you the recipe,  why would you  do that? It tastes better made at home.

But here it is.  I  hope you enjoy. It is  definitely  a great brown bag lunch pack-in.  That and a ham sandwich with  some fruit and you’re  set.
