Macaroni-Pineapple Salad with Thousand Island Dressing

This is very healthy and very easy to prepare salad.Always serve the dressing separately. If we mix it and keep the vegetables generally let out water and the whole salad will be watery. If the salad is going to be served immediately then we can mix it and serve. I pack this salad for my husband for his dinner at least two days a week and he loves it.Just toss it up and have fun.

Boiled Macaroni 2 cups
Pineapple diced 1 cup
Tomato 1 cored and diced
Cucumber diced 1 cup

Lettuce chopped 2 cups
Capsicum diced ½ cup
Lime Juice – 1 tsp

Salt and pepper as per taste

¾ Cup Thick Yogurt whisked with a fork or spoon to creamy texture
¼ tsp crushed raw mustard
A pinch or 2 of salt
Few drops of lime juice
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp finely chopped capsicum
1 tbs Tomato ketchup( No onion No garlic from Kissan)

Boil Macaroni till it becomes soft. Drain the water and cool it immediately by pouring cold water on it.Mix all the above mentioned ingredients of the salad in a salad bowl. Garnish with Little boiled corn, pomegranate,coriander leaves and cheese.For the dressing mix all the mentioned ingredients in a bowl.
