Macaroni salad should not be stored for long time. As we are using fresh yogurt so it's best to consume within 24 hours otherwise the flavor will change.
Alternatively, you can use a portion size of yogurt and mix it when you have it. In this way, you can store salad without yogurt for 2 days in the refrigerator.
People also ask, the starch in macaroni makes some cluttering when we use it after a few minutes of the boil. To get rid of this, boil macaroni for 8 minutes (maximum) then rinse it with cold water and wash it with your hands and drain water. Repeat the step 2 to 3 times. In this way, the excess starch over macaroni skin will wash and it will not stick together. After washing, sprinkle vegetable oil and mix well. This step will prevent cluttering.
Which yogurt is best to use?
It's better to use greek yogurt as it's thick and creamy in texture. Otherwise, you can use any other yogurt brand. I used full-fat yogurt with vitamin A & D. Make sure the yogurt is not watery and good in taste. Avoid the sour taste of yogurt.
What to Use on place of green chilies?
Jalapenos are best if you want to skip green chilies.
