This may be the best recipe for macaroni and cheese salad I have tasted! I never thought that cider vinegar would taste perfectly well in this dish. To my surprise, it made the salad extra special. It has a unique taste that you would want to taste every bite that you take. Don’t sleep on the cherry tomatoes! They give a very nice flavor to the salad. If you like, try this to the tomatoes, slightly toast the tomatoes. It would taste incredible! Also, be very generous with the cheese. More cheese means more flavor! Just do it and thank me later! You all have an amazing day and I hope you all love this recipe. Take care!
