Fast, easy, and very tasty. Not too sweet, not too tangy.

If you've ever been called a "picker", leaving a pile of crunchy chunks of veggies on your plate after eating macaroni salad, this one's for you. It is a good recipe for folks, young and old, who don't like celery or onions in their macaroni salad. There are scallions in it, but they're pretty harmless. But if you don't like them, please feel free to leave 'em out!
