Hawaiian Macaroni Salad

In Utah, we have a fair amount of Hawaiian food trucks. They are frequently found at outdoor events throughout the state such as town days, fairs, and concerts.

Every time I have eaten at one, my meal includes a Hawaiian version of the traditional macaroni salad. It is delicious and always pairs perfect with whatever I order.

So to pair with the Hawaiian bbq chicken I shared yesterday, I decided to fix a Hawaiian macaroni salad. The main thing with this salad is you have to give it at least 1 hour in the fridge before serving. I think it is best if you give it overnight!
