    Wow! Let me start off by saying that I didn't have all the ingredients called for so I had to do some substitutions. Instead of Cider Vinegar I used 1/2 Red Wine Vinegar & 1/2 Balsamic Vinegar. I also didn't have Jalapenos, plus I had to feed this to my kids so I used Yellow Peppers instead, which are much more mild. I also didn't add all of the mayo cause I ran out, but it was only like 3 tablespoons short, which turned out perfect. Once I was done putting it together, I decided to add a little handful of cilantro since it seemed like a good match. [Great choice by the way!] This Mac Salad was OUTSTANDING. I really, really liked it & I am NOT typically a Mac Salad fan. I will definately make this again. Infact, I can't wait to make it for my family who loves spicy stuff. Thanks for the recipe!!  -  03 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    We loved it - but be warned - this is SPICY (and I only used one large jalapeno). If you are having company I would suggest making another macaroni salad along side this one and warn everyone that this salad is spicy!! I ended up trying Mom's Macaroni Salad (on this site) and it was a perfect compliment to this one. No mayo and on the sweet side. Both are keepers!!!  -  17 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I really liked this recipe because it doesn't have alot of mayo, which I don't like. I doubled the recipe using 1 16oz bag of shell pasta. I added chopped red bell pepper and chopped olives for color. I thought using 4 jalepeno's would be too much, but I chopped them finely and it was perfect, I love the faint spicyness. I will definetly make it again. Thanks Hawaiian Momma!  -  17 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
