When there’s macaroni salad for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you know it’s Christmas, and we’ve developed a recipe that brings even more Christmas elements to the table. For proteins, add cubed ham to your shredded chicken. The ham’s glaze adds sweetness that usually raisins would bring, so you only need to add pineapple to the sweet and savory dish. What makes it even more Christmasy is the addition of queso de bola which you can incorporate into the salad, or grate over the top.

We’ve used Lady’s Choice Real Mayonnaise for this recipe, because its richness and velvety texture is what makes any macaroni salad the right amount of creamy. Toss together this quick dish for the holidays, and it might just replace your family recipe.
