Added: Monday, October 8, 2007


4 C uncooked elbow macaroni
1 C mayonnaise
1/4 C distilled white vinegar
2/3 C white sugar
2 1/2 TBSP prepared yellow mustard
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 large onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Rinse under cold water and drain.

In a large bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper.

Stir in the onion, celery, green pepper, carrot, pimentos and macaroni. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving, but preferably overnight.

*NOTE: I usually chop the veggies extra fine with a food chopper. That way the kids will eat the veggies, too!
