Hawaiian Macaroni Salad

We loved the macaroni salad at Ron’s Island Grill. This is the first time I made macaroni salad for my Hawaiian dinner party.


1 packet of Macaroni

1 tablespoon of Olive Oil

1/4 teaspoon of Mediterranean Sea Salt

1/2 a Carrot, chopped finely

1/2 a Red Onion, chopped finely

Miracle Whip


Ground Black Pepper

Dried or Fresh Parsley

Garlic Salt

Garlic Powder

Onion Powder


Boil macaroni in a pot of boiling water. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon of Mediterranean sea salt to the water. Turn of the heat when macaroni has softened. Drain the macaroni in a colander.

Mix macaroni, carrot and red onion well in a large mixing bowl. Add in 2 parts of miracle whip and 1 part of mayonnaise. Mix well into the macaroni, then add the rest of the seasoning including garlic salt to taste.

Transfer macaroni salad to a pretty salad bowl.

  1. Hi Eloise I’m trying to make that recipe. Can you help me with the measurements from miracle whip to onion powder. Thank you

    • Hi Michelle,

      Sorry for the late response, I would say about 1:3 for the ratio of miracle whip to mayonnaise. You don’t want too much miracle whip unless you like the salad to be very sweet. Miracle whip is very sweet so I went easy on it. For the onion powder, I would say a few shakes or no more than 1 teaspoon.
