Recipe by KookieMomster
This is a ham and pineapple macaroni salad. I cut everything up so that people can pick out anything they don't like. Great for picknics.

Again, I wish people would quit calling very recipe that contains pineapple "Hawaiian". This is not what Mac salad is in Hawaii. Perhaps the term "Tropical" would be more accurate for these dishes. I'm sure the dish may be delicious, but it is not Hawaiian.
