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!
