Rainbow Macaroni Salad

While fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd, my brain changes seasons when the sun goes down on Labor Day. After that, I switch into cold weather mode – bring on the thick knit sweaters and black leather boots! To close the summer season, I wanted to share one of my favorite meals to bring to a party — rainbow macaroni salad. If you’re going to a soiree this afternoon and still aren’t sure what to bring, pay attention this what you need. This can sit in the fridge for a few days so if party goers don’t finish it, bring it home and let the fam chow down. What’s your knock out Labor Day recipe? Tell me in the comments below.
