Macaroni Salad – Hawaiian Style Cold Noodle Salad

Macaroni Salad

The Best Macaroni Salad

Here’s a Macaroni Salad you are going to love and it’s a great recipe to throw into your 4th of July festivities, picnics or Barbecues through out the summer.  Though, I’ve advertised that it’s Hawaiian Style, it’s referred to as Mac Salad.  And, it’s like it in a variety of ways but I’ve changed up a few things that are so subtle, most people won’t even know the difference.  In fact, in my opinion, I just made it better.  Most Luau’s, Hawaiian restaurants or food trucks, that make this salad, make it in bulk and, quite often, miss the mark; most commonly without adding enough Salt.  But, for this particular recipe, I’ve bumped up the flavor a notch, in all areas, to make sure it pleases everyone.

I made this Macaroni Salad tutorial and I collaborated with several other Food Channels for the Holiday.  We’ve pulled together to share each others ideas to celebrate the 4th of July in style, comfort and in good taste.  So CLICK HERE and check out this playlist for some more great ideas.
