BLT Macaroni Salad
There were a total of hundred recipes but somehow this is the one that caught my attention .I had to replace the bacon to make it vegetarian and justify the name.Broccoli tasted great in the salad and made it very healthy and filling.I also added some black olives to give it a little extra booze.This salad would make a perfect mid morning snack and I am sure kids would love it as my both daughters liked it a lot.
