Macaroni Salad with Fruit

July 7, 2014

Macaroni Salad with fruit is the perfect idea to change up your Ordinary Classic Macaroni Salad into something Epic. Summer has never tasted so good with Rotini Noodles, Red Bell Peppers, Green Bell Peppers, Peas, Fresh Pineapple chunks, Basil, and diced Gala Apples. This is one of our family’s all-time favorite Summer Salads. It’s so delightful and refreshing, and it goes over so well with adults and children alike.
