hawaiian macaroni salad

The long weekend is just days away!  Is there a barbeque in your future?  This Hawaiian macaroni salad is the perfect side for ribs, burgers, and other grilled fare.  Simple ingredients and a bit of tang. 

Hawaiian-Style Macaroni Salad [recipe via Spoon Fork Bacon]

1/2 lb. elbow macaroni
1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
1 rib celery, cleaned and diced
1/4 red onion, diced (about 1/3 cup)

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, optional
salt and pepper to taste

1. Fill a large pot with water, place over high heat and bring to a boil. Add about 2 tablespoons of salt and the macaroni and stir.
2. Boil macaroni for about 12-15 minutes or until al dente, stirring occasionally. Drain and set aside.
3. Place mayonnaise, bonito flakes, vinegar, and mustard (if using) in a small bowl and stir together. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Fold carrots, celery, onions, and mayonnaise mixture into the bowl of macaroni and stir together until completely combined.
