While mac salad is not exactly "special occasion" material ... we were more excited by this recipe than other reviewers. My husband LOVED it, even though he seldom tries any mac salad other than his mom's recipe. Based on other comments about needing more flavor, I did double the cheese to 1/2 cup, and mixed it all in rather than sprinkle on top. Champagne vinegar is a must, as it gives it an extra tang, and the tart Granny Smith apples balance nicely with other ingredients. I was worried there wasn't enough sauce mixture to coat everything, but it was delicious and I loved how light it seemed, not coated down with heavy gloppy mayo as so many mac salads are. We will definitely be adding this to our recipe files.

I was delighted to find a healthy macaroni salad, but this recipe did not live up to my expectations. The flavors of the ingredients are very good; they just don't blend together well. Too bad.
