Ono Macaroni Salad

"I was desperately searching for the rather plain macaroni salad served at Ono Hawaiian BBQ and this one comes close! Apparently, this is a typical macaroni salad from the islands. I've also made it with tuna instead of crab, and edamame (soy beans) instead of peas, and it turned out great!"

directions

  • Boil macaroni to al dente - do not over cook; drain & cool.
  • Add all other ingredients to cooled macaroni then add the mayo. The macaroni will absorb the mayo, so you may want to make your salad a day ahead to let the flavors combine. You might also want to add more mayo just before serving. Enjoy!

    This may be a tasty recipe, but the macaroni salad at Ono Hawaiian BBQ has no peas or pickle relish as far as I can tell.
