Ono Macaroni Potato Salad
Did you know ‘ono’ means ‘very good!’ in the Hawaiian language? It’s pronounced just like it sounds. But what YOU’LL hear when you serve this, is multiple requests for the recipe. I served this at our Luau and was swamped with requests for the recipe. Smooth and creamy, this will become your new favorite summer BBQ side go to!
This stuff is perfect with Huli Huli Chicken!

Thanks so much for the Ono Macaroni Potato Salad recipe.
I have a question…
The recipe says to chop the egg whites. Are these supposed to be cooked, because I’m not sure how I would chop an egg white.
Appreciate your help.
PS: I’m cooking lunch for 70 retired seniors. My wife is an eldercare co-ordinator in our community and I’ve roped myself in to help with the christmas lunch.
Great question. Yes, the egg whites are supposed to be chopped. Best of luck on the lunch!
