No barbecue is complete without a pasta salad to go along with it. This Simple Macaroni Salad is a crowd pleaser and takes just a few minutes to make!This Simple Macaroni Salad has been a staple in my family when I was growing up. Almost every barbecue or grilled meal had this as a side. The flavors are light and fresh, with some added crunch from the vegetables. I do not always use tomatoes, but I will always include the onion and celery.I am personally a fan of pasta and macaroni salads that are lightly dressed and not drowning in mayo. If you like it goopy, simply increase the amount of sauce you make. Any small shaped pasta will do here, but I love to use ditalini as that is how I ate this growing up. Ditalini looks like a small, short tube and I find that the shape is perfect for holding the sauce and easier to eat than larger shapes.This Simple Macaroni Salad just screams summer! What were your favorite barbecue sides growing up?
