Macaroni Salad

I was invited to a picnic and was asked to make a macaroni salad. I did not want to do the traditional way so to kick it up a notch, I added a few extra ingredients like olives and chunks of pepperoni. Instead of mayo, I used creamy Italian dressing. It was such a huge hit at the picnic, all I had to do was bring home an empty bowl!
