      This is very close to the L&L salad. I'd recommend cutting it in half unless you're making this for a party. Even starting with 1/2 lb of dry macaroni, there's enough for 6-8 servings. (Remember, the traditional Hawaiian plate lunch calls for 1 scoop of macaroni and 2 scoops of rice!)<br/><br/>You want a medium shred on the carrot. Too fine and it gets wet and turns everything orange. Too course and it's overly crunchy and distracting. Also, it's closer to the restaurant version with about half the amount of carrot than the recipe indicates, about 1/4 cup per 1 cup of dry macaroni. The amount of onion is also too much and cutting it in half is better. Sweet onion is best if you can get it, otherwise yellow will do. Shredding the onion isn't necessary, but it needs to be prepared even finer than minced so that it's almost a paste. It doesn't need to be rinsed or dried.<br/><br/>I STRONGLY disagree with the comment that says tuna is in the restaurant salad. Maybe the original recipe published by Eddie Flores, Jr. had it, but I've also never seen it in the salad from any L&L. Even if I'm wrong and the restaurant version still has tuna, it's undetectable and certainly not 1 small can per 1 lb of dry macaroni, which means it can be left out entirely. Prepare it both ways and you'll see the version without tuna is more like the restaurant than the one with tuna.

      I hate macaroni salad. The only kind I will ever eat and enjoy, is at L & L. I searched for this recipe for a Luau I have coming up, and to me it's spot on with L & L. It's really simple, and hard to stop eating. Love it, and so did all of my test tasters. I will try it with the tuna though, just to compare.

      I reduced the salt to half. I grated the white onion and rinsed it in a mesh sieve. I then pressed out the water. No crunchy over powering onion taste. Perfect!

      Should have read the review before cooking.<br/>Please reduce the salt to 1/2.<br/>It was too salty.
