Deluxe Macaroni Salad

Sena Wilson


Summer time, picnics, and bar-b-que brings forth our best comfort food. We keep our outside grill busy during the summer to keep the kitchen cooler! I prepare some of our easiest and favorite side dishes that require little cooking. This macaroni salad has been one I make often to use with chicken, chops, or even burgers. Enjoy!
