Macaroni Salad

When my daughter was in fifth grade, she needed to prepare or cook something in class. Since she doesn't have access to a stove or oven in class, we chose a recipe wherein she can ready the ingredients at home and will not need any heat/cooking when she prepares her project during her class time: macaroni salad.

This is the recipe card for the macaroni salad that she submitted to her teacher.
