Healthy Recipes: Macaroni Salad


What do people do on Memorial Day? Memorial Day is an important day in America. It’s a day to give thanks, to pay tribute and to remember those who gave their lives to protect our country. In reality, we should be thankful every single day of the year, but the third Monday of May is the official day where we all come together to honor our fallen soldiers. It’s also a time to have picnics, Cook outs, spend quality time with family and friends and celebrate loved ones. Let us be a part of your Memorial Day this year and bring our H3 Macaroni salad to your gathering!

Chef’s Note: Adding onion, celery, carrots, and peppers to this salad will bulk up the nutrition of the salad and make the serving size seem larger.
