Midnight Cafe – Macaroni Salad

Midnight Cafe time again! Let’s have a simple one – Macaroni Salad. I really fall with the Hawaiian macaroni salad. It’s very simple but not easy to get the taste right. The secret is grated onion, not minced because it needs the liquid to make the salad tastes good. I have tried 3 different styles this time but all base on the basic Hawaiian mac salad.


Ingredients: (basic Hawaiian mac salad)

2 cups of elbow macaroni
1/5 onion (grated)
2 baby carrots (grated)
2 Tbsp of mayonnaise


1) Cook the elbow macaroni in a pot of boiled water for 10 minutes, then cover the pot and let it sit for 5 minutes. Macaroni will expand in size, drained and let it cool down.

2) Grate the onion and baby carrots, then add into the cool macaroni and mix well.

3) Add mayonnaise and mix well, taste before adding more seasoning. Sprinkle with grated baby carrots on top to serve.

2nd style: add cooked corns and sprinkle with a bit of black pepper on top.

3rd style: add 1 diced apple and sprinkle with a punch of cinnamon and brown sugar.
