Herbed Cheese and Veggie Macaroni Salad Recipe

If you like macaroni salad you will absolutely love this herbed cheese version. Just a little bit of something “extra” gives a new twist to an old standard. You can make this without herbed mozzarella and still have an “herbed” dish as there is dried dill in the recipe. We all know how much dried dill weed can enhance a recipe! Try it, you’ll like it!
