Amish Macaroni Salad!!!

I have had several requests for a recipe for this "Amish Macaroni Salad"!!!   I think people across the country are familiar with it, because Walmart sold a version of it in their deli.  I am not sure whether they still do or not!   I love a good pasta salad, especially in summer, and this is a really delicious one!!!  I have adapted the recipe a little so that it is probably a little more seasoned the original, but not overly so still!!!  

This is so good to keep on hand in the fridge for summer for  lunch or to serve with a sandwich and it's also great to take to potlucks and cookouts!!!  This holds up well for a few days in the fridge!!!  

Here is what you will need:

2 cup uncooked elbow macaroni
2 Tbs. butter
4 hard boiled eggs, peeled and diced
2 Tbs. sweet pickle relish or minced Bread and Butter pickles
1/2 cup sweet onion, diced
1/2 cup red or green bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. celery seed
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1  1/2 cups mayonnaise
1 Tbs. yellow mustard
1 Tbs. vinegar
1/4 cup sugar

Cook the macaroni according to the package directions.  Be sure to salt the water liberally.  Drain well then place back in the pasta pan or a large mixing bowl.  Add the butter and stir so that it melts into and coats the pasta!   Add the diced hard boiled eggs!

Add the onion, bell pepper, celery and seasonings!  

In a separate bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Pour over the pasta and stir to coat all of the salad ingredients!  

Pour into a large serving bowl.  I like to sprinkle the top with a little more paprika for color!  

Refrigerate to chill and then serve or I actually like it served as soon as you make it and it's a little warm!!!  This stuff is fantastic either way!!!
