It is doubtful that the leper colonies on Molokai prepared this dish during Bl. Damien's time. But it is very much a part of contemporary Hawaiian luaus and makes a nice complimentary dish to go with the kalua pig.

DIRECTIONS

Boil potatoes until tender. Allow potatoes to cool then cut into cubes. Cook then drain the macaroni according to the directions on the macaroni package. While the macaroni is cooking mix the dressing in a small bowl and set aside. Lightly toss the cooked & drained macaroni, cooked & sliced potatoes, and the remaining ingredients. Once tossed mix in dressing.
