Neens from Ono Yum says:

This dish was designed to give you the sensation of temperatures colliding, so make sure you serve the pulled chicken hot and the mac salad cold! The mac salad recipe is the most basic and there are no rules. With that being said, add or subtract whatever ingredients you think would make it good. Personally, I like it as simple as possible.
