Macaroni Salad - A Tradition

No 4th of July BBQ is complete without hamburgers...and no hamburger is complete without macaroni salad.  Serve sliced watermelon and you'll have yourself the perfect classic american meal.    
This macaroni salad recipe has been served in our family for over 30 years.  Here's how to make it:

12 hard boiled eggs
1 bag of salad macaroni
1 white onion finely diced
2 cups of finely diced sweet gherkins (pickles)
2 cups of finely diced celery
2 cups of best foods mayonnaise
1 cup of yellow mustard
1 TBLS White pepper
1 TBLS Salt

This is best if made the day before.
Hard boil the eggs.  Dice all the eggs except one. Save the last egg for a garnish.  Cook the macaroni until tender.  While macaroni is cooking, finely dice the celery, onion, and sweet pickles.
Mix all the ingredients together and season with the salt and pepper.
Add the mayonnaise and mustard...stir until all ingredients are coated.  If you want it more creamy, add more mayo.
Garnish with the sliced egg.
