Directions

  1. Cook the macaroni in a large pot of lightly salted boiling water until tender, 6-8 minutes depending on size. Drain, and set aside.
  2. Stir the vinegar and mayonnaise together in a bowl until thoroughly blended.
  3. Combine the cooked noodles, onions, pimentos, pickles, bell peppers, cheese, olives, and eggs in a large bowl. Add the mayonnaise mixture, and toss gently to coat ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Wow. This is great. A trick I use for pasta and potato salads is to double the dressing and put 1/2 on when first made and then let the salad sit in the fridge so the flavors "marry". Then add some of the left over dressing right before you serve and when you want to eat the leftovers. Of course in this case there will probably be no leftovers as this salad is so good.

Well Jim, I have to say this is pretty darn good. I doctored it up a little bit though. Used 1/2 the pasta, 5 hardboiled eggs (since they were about to reach their pull date) a little green onion for color, some sweet relish, paprika, and celery salt, and I added a little extra mayo (light of course!) per others suggestions as well as a bit of sour cream. Took out the green peppers. Even with half the pasta it made about 8 cups of salad, which is perfect for us. This one goes in the recipe box. Thanks for sharing!

I also thought this was a little dry-definitely needs more mayonnaise.
