This dairy & gluten free chilled BIG Macaroni salad is both creamy and tangy and the perfect companion to all your BBQ’s this summer.
I’m sure everyone’s BBQ menu has a variety of go-to salad options, but there’s something about a big bowl of creamy, chilled macaroni salad that makes it a must when it comes to Summer BBQ’s. You’ll know by now that I’m not a huge fan of pre-made anything, especially macaroni salad; they’re always way too sweet and overloaded with mayo. So what do I do? Make my own of course!
Lets be real, obviously a big bowl of mixed greens with a lemon vinaigrette is probably a healthier option but everyone has their guilty pleasures- Gravy, wings, Doritos and let’s not forget my friend Mr. Cheesecake. I feel like I can hear your jaw dropping ¾ yes I am a real human being and I do indulge once in a while, I just don’t eat these foods every week!
All cravings aside, I decided to create a fun, “healthier” twist and whip up a dressing that’s both sweet and tangy, which slightly resembles a familiar “secret sauce” long island dressing by that yellow arch company (wink wink) who shall not be named here.
I haven’t had a Big Mac in a VERY VERY long time but I do remember the sauce being absolutely delicious, but definitely not nutritious. So here I thought I would mix two delicious things together, with a squeeze of healthiness and make some BIG MACaroni salad.
If you recreate this big macaroni salad be sure to send me a photo using the hashtag #HEALTHNUTEATS on social media so I can easily find and like your photo!! I love seeing your HealthNut recreations 😀
