BLT Macaroni Salad

BLT Macaroni Salad,seriously when did you start eating non vegetarian ? I am sure this would be the first question that would come in your mind after reading the title of the post.I haven’t started non veg believe me,it’s just the name.This is a post that I made from taste of home and instead of bacon I used broccoli.

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.
