Creamy Macaroni Salad

Here is another one of the salads I made to have with dinner on Sunday.  A nice cool side dish for a very hot day!  It pairs great with any dinner but especially when you are cooking on the grill!

I cooked the macaroni noodles according to the package directions, drained them and then let them sit in cold water for about 10 minutes.

While they were cooking I peeled and chopped the eggs and then chopped the green onions.

I drained the cold water from the noodles and added the egg, green onions, drained canned tuna, dill and grated cheese and stirred to combine.

In a medium bowl I combined the mayonnaise, dill pickle juice, relish, vinegar and mustard and whisked to make the dressing.

I added the dressing to the noodle mixture and stirred until evenly distributed, sprinkled the second amount of dill on top, making a nice creamy macaroni salad!
