  1. In boiling salted water cook macaroni to just done.
  2. Drain, rinse well under cold water, drain again and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine all the dressing ingredients whisking until smooth. Reserve 1/2 cup in a container with a lid-set in refrigerator.
  4. Add the cooked & drained macaroni, chopped vegetables and eggs to the dressing bowl. Fold gently so you don't "mash" the pasta.

  6. Chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  7. When ready to serve stir the salad well, checking to see if you need to add the reserved dressing.
