"This is a really good macaroni salad made with either cooked chicken, turkey, (or) smoked turkey, red bell peppers, celery, onions, peas, colby cheese, salad dressing, and Kraft's Creamy Cucumber Ranch Salad Dressing. Note: DO NOT SUBSTITUTE mayonnaise for the salad dressing in this recipe. The salad dressing gives this salad a bit of a kick, as my daughter would say. This salad is a favorite of my mother-in-law's, and I consider that to be a compliment!"


Cindi's Chicken Macaroni Salad

2-3 cups cut-up cooked chicken, or cooked turkey, or smoked turkey
2 cups macaroni, cooked
3/4 cups chopped red bell pepper
2/3 cup thinly sliced celery
2-3 tablespoons finely chopped onions
8 ounces frozen peas, thawed
8 ounces colby cheese, cubed
1 cup salad dressing
1-1/2 cups Kraft Creamy Cucumber Ranch Salad Dressing
salt and black pepper, season according to taste


In a very large bowl, add all the ingredients.

Chill several hours before serving.

Yields: 10-12 servings (Or 4-1/2 lbs. of salad)

Note: When preparing this salad, I added 3 cups of chicken or turkey, since I like more meat in mine. You can also substitute a mild cheddar cheese for the colby. I think Kraft's Creamy Cucumber Ranch Salad Dressing, makes this macaroni salad taste best, but you can use a regular ranch salad dressing.

Now that the summer weather has really hit, sounds like a great dinner.

I like bay shrimp in mac salad. I think that would work for this recipe too.
