I went on a search for a good sweet(ish) Macaroni salad. I realize I am not capable of leaving a recipe alone so this is my version. I also do not love eggs but the fam does so they say that the eggs must be added!

I grew up with really sweet macaroni salads at every picnic. I made this just as written. I used a green bell pepper, so mine was not quite as colorful, but it still was yummy. I started off with 1/4 cup of sugar, but then I ended up adding the full 1/2 cup. It was not too sweet at all. With the mustard and vinegar, it's actually pleasantly sweet and tangy. Thanx for posting!
