Macaroni Salad

Hi All ...
  One of my favourite recipe which was long awaited post to be published :-)
I love this salad for two reasons firstly it is so healthy (having veggies in it) and secondly its very quick and easy to make :-)
So here goes the recipe for you all .....


  • 1 cup boiled wheat macaroni 
  • 1/4 cup capsicum (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup boiled sweet corn 
  • 1/2 cup boiled frozen or fresh peas
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate
  • 1 cup cucumber (finely chopped)
  • 1 cup tomato (without seeds) (finely chopped)
  • Garnish: Few coriander leaves (finely chopped)

For dressing:

  • 3 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp chilly sauce
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper powder
  • Salt taste


  1. Mix all the veggies and boiled macaroni in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk nicely all the ingredients of dressing in a separate bowl.
  3. Keep both the bowls in the fridge.
  4. Before serving pour dressing into the macaroni mixture and mix nicely.
  5. Garnish with chopped coriander.
  6. Serve cold. 

Note: When you boil macaroni add little salt and oil in the water. Macaroni will not stick on the bottom of the vessel.
Strain the water from the macaroni and pour cold water from the top, this will avoid macaroni to stick together.
