Tangy Macaroni Salad

Macaroni Salad. One of the most popular summer side dishes.  So many ways to go so I just tossed together my own. Very simple!

1/2 cup miracle whip dressing
1/2 cup mayo
(want to lighten it up?  Use plain yogurt instead! you can sub it for the mayo or the MW or both)
2 TB yellow mustard
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1 large carrot, shredded
salt and pepper to taste(I use seasoning salt)
4 cups macaroni
1/2 cup shredded cheese, any kind you like, I used sharp cheddar

Combine all ingredients except the macaroni  and cheese and allow to mingle for 1 hour.

Cook macaroni according to package instructions(or fresh if you have the means!)

Drain and rinse macaroni in cold water to cool completely.

Toss pasta and cheese with dressing to coat well.

Refrigerate at least 3 hours.
