Cindy Mason's Amazing BBQ Macaroni Salad

“I had this mouth joy at a BBQ with my honey's work crew. I'm not a fan of macaroni salad, but this is so darn good I just had to get the recipe. Don't let the strange combination of ingredients fool you- I'd probably skip over this one if I just looked at the ingredients but never tried it! Somehow, they all come together to make MAGIC in your mouth! Trust me on this one.”
