When Mr. H and I dated in the Philippines, I always dragged him to Tropical Hut for Burgers and Macaroni Salad before watching a movie to take inside the cinema. I love Tropical Hut’s little tubs of Macaroni Salad, it has this right melody of creaminess, sweetness and saltiness. But my love for Filipino Macaroni Salad didn’t start there, I grew up with this pasta salad in the 70’s, 80’s and up until now am still fond of this cold pasta dish…. I can say we’re old BFF’s.
You can’t have a Filipino gathering or family outing without this pasta salad and it’s another easy dish to assemble. Great for Christmas family parties and if you’re experiencing summer during Christmas like the TRIBE do, this Filipino Macaroni Salad goes great as a side dish for burgers or barbequed meats.
