BLT Macaroni Salad

This would be a perfect side dish with any grillin' you might be doing for Father's Day!  (we had it with The Perfect Burger...SUPERB!!)  Anyway, this salad is really good...the hubby and kids loved it as well, which is saying a lot since Tony (the hubby) doesn't usually like pasta salads!  I think the bacon does it.  Anything with bacon in it gets a man's approval right??!:)

BLT Macaroni Salad
Recipe adapted from Taste of Home
2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
3-4 green onions, finely chopped
1 large tomato, diced
1 1/4 cups diced celery
1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
5 teaspoons white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 jar (2.8 oz) Hormel Real Bacon Pieces

Cook the macaroni according to package directions.  Drain and rinse pasta in cold water until noodles are cooled.  Combine the macaroni, green onions, tomato and celery in a large bowl.  Combine the mayo, vinegar, salt & pepper in a small bowl.  Pour the mayo mixture over the macaroni mixture and stir to coat.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  (It's better when it's sat over night!)  Just before serving stir in the majority of the bacon, reserve a few pieces to sprinkle on the top of the salad when serving!
