I love a good potato salad and macaroni salad when I have BBQ, but sometimes it can get really heavy. Good news, my Spiced Macaroni Salad is easy, light, and absolutely delicious. I love the added spices because it just takes this salad to the next level!

Spiced Macaroni Salad

 ½ lb uncooked macaroni
 ¼ cup sliced black olives
 ½ cup red onions (diced)
 1 red bell pepper (diced)
Salad Dressing
 ¼ cup Veganaise (or light mayo)
 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
 ½ tsp onion powder
 ½ tsp garlic powder
 ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  tsp chili powder
  tsp mustard powder
 ½ tsp brown sugar
 ½ tsp salt
 ½ tsp black pepper

Cook macaroni according to package direction. Drain, cool, and set aside.


While macaroni is cooking, mix all the salad dressing ingredients together.


All the macaroni, olives, onions, and bell peppers to a big bowl. Top with dressing and mix well. Enjoy!
