I adapted it for California style. i used the entire 16 oz bag of small shells 1 can of black olives 5 cans of tuna, in water drained whole dill pickles in my quick chopper..just thru them in sweet relish Giuliano jalapeno spread (its really a jalapeno relish) this is delish on everything fresh ground pepper hot chili flakes lots of mayo and juice of any of your relishes to thin it out i uses 2 red onions chopped shredded carrots for color lots of celery put all the chopped, mayo, tuna, etc in a chilled bowl and blend together, just everything. rinse the pasta in cold water to chill and dump in and mix and mix taste and taste. let the flavors blend and fuse overnight. you can sub small cooked shrimp for the tuna too sometimes i put small chunks of pepper jack cheese.

very tasty macaroni salad. Only thing I did different was add a 1 tbs sugar and 1 tbs dill pickle juice. - 02 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is from the author of the recipe, I think that maybe 1 and 1/2 cups to 2 cups of mayonnaise may be enough, depending on how you like it. - 08 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
