Gluten Free Hawaiian Macaroni Salad

Every once in a blue moon our family treats ourselves to LNL Hawaiian BBQ for supper. We always grab the bbq chicken with shredded cabbage, steamed rice, and the ultra decadent traditional Hawaiian macaroni salad. Its smooth texture is created with ample amounts of mayo, a hint of sugar and a splash of white vinegar. It is a bit of heaven on the palate and most likely packed with a bazillion yummy calories. But alas, it is filled with gluten and something about gluten is not good for lots of people, including me. So I have learned to adapt recipes and this one does a pretty good job.

But in all honesty, gluten free pasta will never have the same texture as traditional pasta. So if you can eat regular pasta, then, by all means, get the read deal. But for us on team GLUTEN FREE, we just to do what we got to do.

So grab a notepad and jot down the ingredients for a quick shopping trip to make a batch of this fantastic Gluten Free Hawaiian Macaroni Salad.

    Gluten Free Hawaiian Macaroni Salad




    1. Cook gluten-free macaroni according to package directions. It is super important to follow the direction on the package because each brand of gluten-free pasta cooks differently.
    2. Drain well and place macaroni in a large bowl. I love my clear glass bowls for food prep and serving.
    3. While macaroni is still hot, sprinkle with vinegar and add carrot and onion. Toss together until well combined. Allow batch to cool for 15 minutes.
    4. In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together gluten-free- mayo, milk, and sugar.
    5. Fold creamy mayo mixture into the macaroni until all the noodles are evenly coated. Add salt and pepper to taste.
    6. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Gently fold again before serving. Sprinkle on some extra thinly sliced scallion to make it pretty like the photo.

  1. Thank you for this recipe. I’m going to use it the next time I have company over. I have recently started gluten-free eating, so I’m grateful for these types of recipes.

  2. We have a Hawaiian bbq place in our neighborhood and we have never been-will have to try this! I also have a set of nesting glass bowls and I use them all-the-time! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  3. Not to be rude but this tasted terrible. I threw it in the garbage. Not sure if I don’t know what Hawaiian macaroni salad is supposed to taste like but if this is it, then I am not a fan.

    1. It is not a particularly spicy or flavor-filled recipe, it is just macaroni salad. Gluten pasta takes some getting use to as well. Everyone has an opinion and I value anyone who leaves a comment. I like the refular pasta, I now mostly eat organic pasta instead of gluten-free
