Filipino Style Macaroni Salad

This Filipino version of Macaroni Salad is loaded with shredded chicken, pineapple tidbits and other yummy ingredients.   My parents taught us how to make this and the other salad recipes we know.  Growing up we were exposed to good food as my father is a foodie himself. This recipe is hearty and delicious, a must-have for any party or celebration.
