This is definitely NOT Hawaiian style Mac salad. Just because something has pineapple in it, does not make it Hawaiian. It might be a very good salad, but it's not anything like what we make in Hawaii. And adding chicken to it will not make it any closer to being Hawaiian, just the opposite.

could we add chicken and have it feel like a HAWAIIAN MACARONI SALAD//??? Have you seen it done before .ALYSE
