Cheesy Macaroni Salad

Recipe by Elizabeita

I like trying different things, especially when coming across things in the pantry that have nothing to do. I made this for a summer picnic.

I made this for a camping trip over the weekend and it was wonderful! Very easy, and very tasty everyone enjoyed it a lot. I love macaroni salad, but have never had any with cheese. After trying this I'm not sure why all macaroni salad doesn't include cheese as an ingredient. Thanks for sharing!
