#3458 - Hearty Macaroni Salad

(by Shirley McNevich)

4 cups raw elbow macaroni
1 cup mayo
1/4 cup white vinegar OR cider vinegar
up to 2/3 cup white sugar
2 1/2 TBSP French's yellow mustard
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1 chopped red onion
2 celery ribs (chopped)
1 green bell pepper (chopped)
2 TBSP chopped pimentos
2-4 hard boiled eggs (chopped)

Prepare elbow macaroni according to box directions--drain but do NOT rinse. In a large bowl add the mayo, white vinegar, 1/4 cup white sugar, mustard, salt and pepper--stir to mix. Taste--if too sour for your taste, continue adding more white sugar and stirring again until you like the flavor. Add the chopped onions, chopped celery, chopped green bell peppers, chopped pimentos, chopped eggs and drained macaroni--toss to mix. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
