Creamy cheddar & macaroni salad

There’s nothing as comforting as macaroni and cheese together, but with a healthy twist of fresh ingredients, one can raise the bar quite high in Gourmet flavour standards. Try my version of this salad with a burst of light flavours and freshness.



Macaroni – 100gm (or any other shape of your choice)

Red bell pepper (chopped) – ½ no.

Celery (chopped) – 3 ribs

Cheddar cheese – 100gm

Onion (chopped) – ½ no.

Mayonnaise – 2 tbsp

Powder sugar – ½ tsp

Apple cider vinegar – 2 tbsp

Pepper – ½ tsp

Salt – to taste


1)      Begin by first collecting all your ingredients.

2)      Add about 1lt of water to a pot with some salt & bring to a boil. Once the water boils, add in the pasta & cook till done. Once done, strain the pasta & drizzle with a spoon of olive oil. Give it a toss & let it cool. This will prevent the pasta from sticking.

3)      Chop all the vegetables & mix it into the cooled pasta.

4)      For the dressing, combine the mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar & pepper in a bowl. Give it a good mix & its ready.

5)      Finally drizzle the dressing over the pasta, toss it & voila.. it’s ready!!
