Easy Sweet and Tangy Macaroni Salad

My family doesn't like macaroni salad with a lot of mayonnaise. I threw together this recipe one day when I couldn't find one I liked online. It was a huge hit with everyone helping themselves to seconds. I think this recipe would also be great with some hard boiled egg added. You could also try different vegetables such as celery or green pepper according to your taste. The result is a sweet and tangy, not overly creamy or mayonnaise tasting macaroni salad. Great with grilled food!
