Macaroni salad is like having a blank canvas to add any number of other ingredients. A rotisserie chicken and a package of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix are some of the flavorful ingredients in this recipe.
HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN BACON RANCH MACARONI SALAD
- Boil the macaroni in a large pan of salted water as directed on the box. Drain water and set aside. Any pasta shape can be used. I used elbow macaroni for this one.
- Combine mayonnaise and package of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix in a small bowl.
- In a large mixing bowl, place the celery, bell peppers, relish, salt and pepper, cooked macaroni, chicken and half of the bacon. Add the mayonnaise mixture and combine well to coat all ingredients.
- Transfer to a serving bowl and top with remaining crumbled bacon.
