  2. Mix mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Stir in onion, celery, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, carrot, pimentos, and macaroni. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight, before serving.

Not a bad maccaroni salad. I used low fat mayo as I thought 18 grams of fat per serving was way too much for a "healthier"macaroni salad. I also added paprika. Brought this to a bbq.Not a great hit. Most people did not like the whole wheat maccaroni. Next time will use white.
