Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Serving Size: 1 to 2 people maximum
- Two cups of boiled Macaroni
- Five finely sliced black olives
- Half tin of boiled sweet corns
- Three sliced baby corns
- Three tablespoon of capsicum cubes
- Two tablespoons of chopped tomatoes
- Twenty kidney beans
- Four tablespoons of French dressing

The first step is to boil the macaroni. You can select any macaroni you want, but since this salad requires noodles specifically, select the best ones. You can always make pasta at home, but they are also easily available in the market. Check the expiry date of the noodles before you shop for it.
Take a deep pot and allow the water to boil. Add some salt to it. Once the water has boiled add the noodles into it. Allow to cook for 5-10 minutes depending on the tenderness. Once the noodles are soft, remove them from the pot and rinse in a sieve with cold water.
Take a big bowl and add macaroni, sweet corns, sliced black olives, baby corns, tomato slices, kidney beans and capsicum in it. Mix them well.
Now add French dressing over it, sprinkle some salt and black pepper powder over it.
Put it in fridge for approx. 10 minutes. Before serving pour it over salad leaves and then serve.
