Macaroni Salad (Paula Deen's)

I came across this recipe at food.com, which Adrienne in Reisterstown had posted the recipe, but I slightly tweaked the recipe to suit my taste. The end results...
A delicious tasting salad which I would make again.

Macaroni Salad (Paula Deen's)

2 cups cooked macaroni
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 small green onion, chopped
1 (2 oz.) jar diced pimientos, drained
1 tablespoon honey dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Morton's Season-All Salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1 cup mayonnaise, chilled

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and serve.

Note: After I prepared this salad, I chilled it in the refrigerator for 3 hours, but the salad seemed dry, so I prepared a bit more of the dressing, and added it immediately. What a difference that made. The salad was a lot more creamy, and stayed creamier for several days in the fridge.

Also, when adding a bit more of the dressing, I used, 1/2 cup Hellmann's Mayonnaise 1/2 tablespoon of the mustard, 1/4 teaspoon Morton's Season-All Salt, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, and 1/2 teaspoon Lawry's Lemon Pepper Seasoning.
