Yankee Doodle stuck a feather in his hat and called it macaroni because he thought it was fashionable. Back then, young British men who spent time traversing Europe, absorbing art, history and literature, returned with Italian clothes and exotic Italian dishes like macaroni. The British, after their American counterparts tried to copy their mannerisms, wrote the song Yankee Doodle to mock the Americans. There, mystery solved. Macaroni in salad? Possible! Cucumber, bell pepper, zucchini, pineapple and al dente macaroni are coated with a zesty yogurt-mayo dressing and finished off with capers, parsley and spring onions.
