Boil the eggs, peel and chop. Cook the macaroni according to package directions (I cook mine for 8 minuteand drain. Drain pimentos. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, macaroni, pimentos, 3/4 cup of the chopped green onions, celery seed, sugar, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon of the smoked paprika, apple cider vinegar and mix all together with a spoon.
Fold in the shredded cheese. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika on top of salad along with 1/4 cup of chopped green onions. Chill for several hours or overnight.
I boiled 7 eggs instead of six and used the extra one for garnish on top of the salad along with the extra onions and paprika.
