I buy chicken from the grocery store deli and a large container of macaroni salad and always have some leftover. This recipe is what I do with it.

This is a great recipe to make plain old deli macaroni salad fresh and delicious. Adding chicken turns it into a hearty salad. Tomatoes add a pop of freshness. We also loved the crunch from the celery. It's a light summertime meal or great for a picnic. Just make sure to use a deli macaroni salad you love since it's the base of the salad.
