Making Macaroni Salad

  1. Cook macaroni until it's al dente
  2. Mix dressing ingredients together and chop the veggies to your liking. Note: if you don't enjoy too much crunch finely chop your veggies.
  3. Combine the macaroni pasta and dressing together. Add the veggies and mix

Note: We prefer to enjoy macaroni salad with less mayonnaise. Feel free to adjust to your liking.
