Recipe by Leslie in Texas

An unusual approach to the traditional macaroni salad. Make it 2 or 3 days ahead to allow flavors to blend, but do taste before serving since it may need a little more salt or vinegar.Originally from a January 1979 issue of Bon Apetit.

  2. Add all other ingredients to macaroni and mix well.
  3. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 3 days.
  4. Taste for seasonings before serving; there should be a suggestion of chili and a tart tang from the vinegar.
