The recipes from the luau continue today with an easy Hawaiian macaroni salad. I have shared a Hawaiian macaroni salad recipe before. This version today is a more simple recipe. I do think I like it better than the one I shared before.

now, I found some larger noodles at the store that I used when I made this. I think the shape was fun  and their was even comments about it at the luau. The basis of this salad is macaroni, shredded carrots, and a little shredded onion.

The dressing for this salad is simple – mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, milk, and sugar. Don’t ne alarmed with how runny the dressing looks. The salad sits in the refrigerator for a bit before serving. While it is re4frigerated, the macaroni abosorbs most of the moisture and you end up with a thick coating on the salad.
