This can be assembled quickly once the macaroni is cooked, but it needs to be chilled well. On a hot day, it can be made in the cool of the morning and save working over a hot stove in the heat of the afternoon. Great for a summertime picnic or pot-luck as well.

Adding cooked chicken or tuna makes it a whole meal.  For a side salad, use only the vegetables.
