Christmas nostalgia

Reminiscing about Christmases past, I remembered that Nanay would often make a chicken-macaroni salad as part of the Noche Buena. I thought that to pay tribute to my Mom's cooking, I will channel her and make my own version. My Mom used store bought mayo and poached the chicken. For our version, I used home-made mayo and store-bought roasted chicken. Instead of using elbow macaroni, we used cavatappi pasta. We added finely chopped onions and celery, sweet pickle relish, diced pimento and sweet paprika. The only thing missing is her glazed ham.
