Macaroni is very popular food in Western countries. Many people love to eat macaroni in cheese, macaroni pasta casserole but they seldom make macaroni salad in fruit cocktail. This recipe is easy to make and is very good for desert. When we have gatherings, we usually served this macaroni salad and everybody loves it.

Here are the things you will need for the recipe.

2 cups elbow macaroni

1 can condensed milk

2 cans fruit cocktail ( 15.5 oz)

2 cups mayonnaise


Step 1. cook the macaroni following the instructions in the box. The usual instruction for cooking macaroni is to boil 2-3 cups of water, put a little salt in it or a little oil to avoid the macaroni to stick. As soon as the water is boiling, add the macaroni and reduce the heat. Cook the macaroni until tender then drain. Wash the macaroni in cold water then set aside.

Step 2.  Open the canned fruit cocktail and drain the syrup from it.  Do not include the syrup for it will make your salad watery. Also open the canned condensed milk.

Step 3. In a big mixing bowl, combine the cook macaroni, fruit cocktail, condensed milk and mayonnaise. Mix thoroughly and let it chill for an hour before serving. You can make 6-8 servings on this. You can keep the left over and the more you chill it the more it taste good.

This is good to serve when you have birthday party, potluck or other gatherings. Best for people who have limited time to prepare something to serve for visitors.
