Dominican Macaroni Salad

Spent the weekend eating ensalada de coditos aka Dominican style macaroni salad. My mom makes it using all raw veggies, which I love for the added flavor and crunch. This makes for a great summer salad or side to a main dish! For days when I don’t feel like cooking, I throw some tuna into this and call it a day. Recipe below. Enjoy the long weekend!! -Wendy
