I used Dijon mustard, salt and pepper because we thought it needed. I also sprinkled with parsley and omitted the peas.

This is really good and easy to make. I added an extra tablespoon of mustard and some salt and pepper just to suit our tastes, but it would still be very good as is.

My husband does NOT like macaroni salads..... but he liked THIS one! ! I made a big batch for a family gathering, and there wasn't any left. Yummy!

I tried this salad with lemon yogurt instead of plain, as I though it would make a good taste combination with the mustard, and it turned out great! This salad is very eye- catching with its colors. Very satisfying!

Best macaroni salad I've ever made. I substituted shredded carrots for the celery and 1/4 cup red onions for the sliced green onions. The dressing is light and flavorful.

This was very good. I added an extra 2 tsps of prepared mustard and 2 1/2 tsps of salt once ready to be chilled. Very, very good.
