BLT Macaroni Salad

This is truly a delicious recipe that’s considerably healthier than what you normally get from a macaroni salad…. you get more veggies! Plus, most of these ingredients can be found in your fridge on a daily basis, but the combination of flavors and textures really takes it to the next level.

Chef’s Tip: We learned after-the-fact from a traditional Hawaiian macaroni salad recipe to take the hot, strained  noodles straight from the pot and mix in the vinegar. Let that soak for a few minutes beforehand to give your macaroni salad an extra boost in taste! You won’t be disappointed!


  • 1 lb. elbow macaroni, cooked
  • ¾ cup mayo
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1½ teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 8 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup baby spinach, chopped


  1. First, toss together the hot, stained pasta with the rice vinegar.
  2. Let that soak for a few minutes before adding all the remaining ingredients.
  3. Refrigerate or enjoy immediatelyChef’s !
