This salad is usually served on the plate lunches in Hawaii. This is just a basic recipe. You can add anything such as boiled eggs, tuna, peas, etc. to make it your own. I got this recipe off the net. Let me know what you think!
- 3 cups large macaroni
- 1⁄4 cup grated carrot
- 1 cup Best Foods Mayonnaise (a must)
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- salt & pepper
- Cook macaroni till tender.
- Add grated carrots, mayonnaise, and milk till well coated. Salt & Pepper to taste. Use more mayonnaise if needed.
- Chill in refrigerator.
- When ready to serve, add more mayonnaise to keep salad from drying out.
You can't help but crave this stuff after eating plate lunch in Hawaii. I did follow the other reviewers and added vinegar and (brown) sugar (but a lot less). I also added a little more milk and 2 celery stalks. It did hit the spot! We liked this best right away, though I know a lot of people like to refrigerate it overnight.
I was originally going to make my husbands filipino macaroni salad to go with the Korean spare ribs I was making but didn't have all the ingredients on hand, so I decided on a very basic macaroni salad and this fit the bill. This is exactly what you get when your served a side of hawaiian macaroni salad. Its pretty basic no frills. I did however, add 2 Tb of sweet condensed milk to suit my taste. Thanks for posting!
This was exactly what I was looking for to go with my kalua pork and rice. I felt like I was is Hawaii again. I did add a little sweetened condensed milk to add a little sweetness to the mayo. It was great!
