Easy Macaroni Salad With 3 Beans

Easy Macaroni Salad With 3 Beans

Macaroni Salad is super easy to make at home. You just need few basic ingredients to make it, rest is your wish. You can modify it in any way that suits your taste buds. I made it using 3 types of beans and some other veggies.  All the veggies and macaroni were tossed in a rich and creamy white sauce and seasoned with salt and pepper. I did not increase the spice level as it has to be kids approved, but you can use green chilies to make it spicy.
