Basic Macaroni Salad

I am an expert on macaroni salad.  Trust me, I have years of experience.  I am always trying out new recipes in search of THE perfect mix.  I don't like it toooo creamy, or tooo sour.  I'm pretty much Goldilocks minus the bears and porridge, add some noodles.  This one, THIS one even meets my standards.  I think I'll eat a bowl and go find the perfect bed to take a nap...it's the green pepper, seriously, what?  It makes all the difference....and I'm not even much on fresh green pepper, but apparently I just haven't been eating it in the right dishes.  The original recipe is from 365ofbaking.
