Put the flavor of Ono into this backyard barbecue and cookout favorite- Hawaiian macaroni salad with the edge of the Pacific Rim.
Hawaiian Macaroni Salad
Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
Give your food the flavor of “Ono” (Hawaiian for good tasting & delicious!) at your next barbecue, picnic or cookout with this delicious variation on traditional macaroni salad.
It’s after Easter and of course I still had a little ham! As well, pineapples suddenly seem to be very inexpensive at the marketplace. Ideas began to spring to use these together to make a nice prepped salad, which I like to have at least one of at all times during warmer weather, be it macaroni salad, potato salad, slaw or other more exotic chilled salads. I find they come in very handy as an extra side for dinner, make easy work of lunch when paired with a sandwich, and of course, a cold salad is always welcome at any family barbecue. Just remember to keep the salads with mayo and eggs chilled when setting on a table or buffet. One easy idea is to nest a slightly larger bowl with the salad over a slightly smaller bowl filled with ice, stacked together. Just make sure your top bowl won’t sink into melting ice.
And as always, I do hope you enjoy!
