Origin of macaroni salad is from Hawaii island, where these elbow macaroni salad is a staple food. Crunchy and creamy, this salad is delight to serve during summer’s. Variations are unlimited with macaroni. Toss them with your regional veggies with a dollop of mayonnaise. Though no one really knows how this salad was invented.
