Amish Macaroni Salad Recipe Ingredients:
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1 lb macaroni (or small shells)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion (more if desired)
1/2 cup finely grated carrot
6 hard-boiled eggs (reserve 1 to slice for garnish, and chop the remaining 5)

Amish Macaroni Salad Recipe Preparation Instructions:
Cook macaroni as directed on package; Drain& cool. In a bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients so they are well-combined and smooth. In a large bowl, gently combine the macaroni, celery, carrots, onions, and remaining eggs. Fold the dressing gently into the macaroni salad mixture. Place into your serving bowl and garnish with the reserved slice egg and paprika. Let sit overnight for the best results.
NOTE: It was not in the original recipe, but I sometimes add 1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped green pepper if I have it around.
