Side dishes, such as Potato & Macaroni Salad, add to any meal. They make a normal plain rice or even a mixed rice dish more delicious. Potato/macaroni salads? Yeah, These are the two trini favorites when we think of a salad followed closely by cole slaw. We trinis can’t do without this side dish, especially on a Sunday, together with macaroni pie and callaloo.
Potato & Macaroni Salad: A Perfect Side Dish
This salad recipe, Potato and macaroni salad (even separate as potato or macaroni salad) makes a perfect side dish for anything barbecued (fish, chicken or pork) and, another of my favorite Trini dishes, pelau. But you can’t stop there, it can also make a filling meal by itself; not to mention it makes a perfect 30 minute meal.
However, I can hear one or two readers thinking “those Trini’s really eat too much carbs”. Sad to say you may be right for most folks, gladly not all. So, for the sake of those individuals who overdo it with the carbs, don’t forget to toss in a generous serving of salad with your potato and macaroni salad or just organise ah lil cricket fete match to burn off those extra calories. Or, if you are by the beach there’s always people playing ah lil “small goal”, just ask to join :-D…
Anyhow, don’t be daunted by the amount of ingredients in this salad recipe: it’s really simple. So simple a caveman could do it ….but then macaroni wasn’t invented as yet hahaha lol!
