Serves 8 to 10

Make sure to dry the cooked and rinsed pasta thoroughly.

1  pound elbow macaroni
1  stalk celery, minced
1/4  small red onion, minced (2 to 3 tablespoons)
3  hard-boiled eggs, peeled and diced small
1/4  cup minced sweet pickles
1/4  cup minced fresh parsley leaves
1/4  cup lemon juice
1  cup mayonnaise
2  teaspoons Dijon mustard
Ground black pepper

1. Bring 4 quarts water to a boil in large pot and add 2 tablespoons salt. Stir in the macaroni and cook until thoroughly done, 10 to 12 minutes Drain the macaroni into a colander and rinse with cold water until cool. Shake the macaroni dry in the colander and spread in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet lined with paper towels. Let the macaroni dry for 3 minutes.
