We first tasted a potato and macaroni salad while in Kauai. I believe it is also popular on the other islands.
My family (Ohana) all love this, and request it often. I usually double the ingredients because it goes really fast!
serves6 to 8
prep time4 Hr 45 Min
red and/or gold potatoes, cooked til tender, peeled and cut into cubes
cooked shell or elbow macaroni, about 1-1/2 cup macaroni cooked til tender
red onion, finely chopped
eggs, hard cooked and chopped
frozen green peas, defrosted
celery, finely chopped
sweet pickle relish
mayonnaise (i prefer helman's)
sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
cayenne pepper to taste (optional)
How To Make
In large bowl, toss together potatoes and next 8 ingredients; set aside.
In small bowl, mix mayo, cider vinegar, sugar, garlic powder, salt & pepper, and cayenne if desired.
Lightly toss with the potato and macaroni mixture.
Refrigerate over night,or for a minimum of 4 hours. Taste, and adjust seasoning if needed. Some brands of mayonnaise will seem to soak into the potatoes and macaroni overnight, so be prepared to make up another batch of the sauce if it seems too dry after refrigeration, so adjust as needed.
