Good morning to all the foodies there!! Today I am going to share the recipe for “Cold Macaroni Salad“. You just need a cup of boiled Macaroni, some veggies or fruits of your choice, mayonnaise or any salad dressing and you can prepare this gorgeous yummy salad in minutes anytime. This is quite a simple salad and I have been in love with it for years. You would find such salad mostly in buffets of restaurants with less or more ingredients mentioned here. It is a perfect salad for summer when you actually don’t feel hungry and looking for something cool, refreshing and lite. This salad is fulfilling, easy to make and perfect addition to any party menu.
I am going to use ‘Cremica’ brand ‘Caesar salad dressing’ here. You may use mayonnaise in combination with vinegar or lime juice to add that creaminess and tanginess to the salad. To see the recipe for home-made mayonnaise, click here.
