Macaroni looks interesting, thanks to its strange shape. Top it with colourful vegetables like capsicum, tomatoes, sweet corn and peas to create a riot of colours and flavours.

A good dose of cheese makes the macaroni and vegetable salad even more tempting, and cooling it in the fridge makes it perfect for even the hottest of afternoons.
