Macaroni Salad Meal


(0 votes) 0 0

This was a prize winning recipe of my aunt's. It's designed to be a meal in one, great for summertime, make-ahead, picnic, pot luck, etc. Can accompany and compliment ham, sausages, bologna, salami, tuna, fish, or chicken. She cooked for millionaires, so this is not your usual throw together salad.
