Copycat KFC Macaroni Salad 

Do you ever have a craving for something out of the blue, that you haven’t eaten in years???

Years

It’s been years since I had KFC Macaroni Salad but I remember it so vividly.

The noodles are gooey and delicious but then you get the crunch from the crunchy veggies.

It really is a classic 

If there was a top ten list of American Classics, I think this macaroni salad would be on it.

I love recreating classic recipes, it brings back a flood in memories.

When I was younger we moved houses twice; the first during the summer I was going into grade 1, the other was the summer I was going into grade 4.  Both times, we had, you guessed it – KFC for dinner.  KFC was the first meal in our new home – twice.

Thank you for the walk down memory lane ❤️

I present my recipe for Copycat KFC Macaroni Salad, its ooey and gooey,  and deliciously crunchy, using everyday, simple ingredients 🙂
