1 medium green pepper, finely chopped

Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water.
Transfer to a large bowl; add the coleslaw mix, onions, celery, cucumber, green pepper and water chestnuts.
In a small bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients.
Pour over salad; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Don't love Miracle Whip? Use mayonnaise instead.
Kool factoid: The term "coleslaw" is derived from the Dutch word "koolsla," literally translated as "cabbage salad." The term has evolved to refer to many types of crunchy, shredded-vegetable salads that hold up well after being dressed.
