It’s nearly the beginning of the cookout season and this Creamy Macaroni Coleslaw Salad will be a delicious side dish to bring to your next summer event.  It’s an easy salad to make, just be sure to make it a few hours before you are serving it so that the flavors will have time to meld.

How to make Creamy Macaroni Coleslaw Salad

As with any of my recipes, I find it easier to gather all my ingredients together before starting to cook.  In this case, I find it best to prepare the dressing in a bowl so that’s ready when you toss the salad.  Also, chop all the vegetables while the macaroni is cooking.

Toss all the ingredients before adding the dressing, this helps to make sure everything is distributed and will be covered with the delicious salad dressing.
