Macaroni Salad

Nothing says summer like macaroni salad. And nothing compliments a burger like salad. This is my mom's recipe and I love the way the french dressing makes it taste. It's always best to let it sit for awhile - before you put the mayo on and after the mayo has been put on. I don't know why, but it just tastes better.

Pepper added by Joey - he was too busy with his burger to add any

1/2 bag macaroni
1/4 red pepper, diced
1/4 green pepper, diced
4 green onions, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
3/4 cup french dressing
3/4 cup mayo
Salt and pepper

1. Cook macaroni and when done run under cold water.
2. Put in a large bowl and add peppers, celery and onion.
3. Season with salt and pepper and add french dressing. Mix well.
4. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
5. Add mayo and mix.
6. Place back in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

You don't have to wait these times if you don't want to, I just think it makes it taste better.
