Macaroni salad is actually a type of pasta salad, which is made of cooked elbow macaroni mixed with mayonnaise. It is often served cold just like how potato salad or coleslaw is. This salad can be eaten as a side dish to fried food. However, in the Philippines, it is considered a dessert.

Compared to other variations, the Pinoy version of macaroni salad has a mildly sweet flavor. This is due to the addition of cheese and some fruits, such as pineapple. We also put in raisins. The western version usually has onions, pepper, and celery, but it is normally not included in ours. However, we use them in this recipe. We also add cubed or shredded chicken. Yum!
