One of my favorite types of side salads is macaroni salad. You all know how much I love making copycat recipes so making this Delicious Copycat KFC Macaroni Salad was a win-win for me.

EDIT: Several of you were quick to point out that KFC no longer offers Macaroni Salad. Apparently, they removed it from their menu many years ago.

When I do eat KFC I usually get their coleslaw. Not sure why. Maybe habit? Well I need to break that habit as their macaroni salad is off the hook.

Too bad they no longer offer it. If you haven’t had it yet, don’t worry. Now you can make it in your very own kitchen.

The great thing about coleslaw recipes is how simple they are to make. Especially a coleslaw like this one that doesn’t require you to shred a bunch of cabbage!

    This macaroni salad is delicious. I am not a fan of real mayonnaise so the ingredient of Miracle whip made this salad just perfect. I had some left over after my family gathering and it was still delicious the next day. I was thinking that maybe next time I make it I will also add some raisins.
