Every region or nationality seems to have its own version of Macaroni Salad. It's interesting to see the small nuances of variations! I tweaked this one from a blog of Amish recipes. (Cooking time includes chilling of the completed salad before serving and also cooking the pasta and eggs. If the eggs and macaroni are cooked and chilled ahead, then total time would be less.)
