Default Macaroni Salad

Since Spring has already sprung (although the temperatures here don't show it yet) Summer is not far off and we should be looking for cooler foods to serve.
I found the following recipe for Macaroni Salad on the net and thought it might be something that I would like. The original recipe also added a little dill weed and some finely chopped celery, but I left them out. I might add a little celery seed. The note about adding Bacon is my doing, but I think it might be good.
What are anyone's thought about this dish?

MACARONI SALAD

1 Pound Macaroni, cooked, drained, and set aside to cool
3/4 Cup Mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoons Parsley, dried
Kosher Salt and fresh ground Black Pepper, to taste
1/3 Cup Red Onion, finely chopped

While the Macaroni is cooking whisk together all of the other Ingredients.
Add the cooked Macaroni to the mixture, stirring well to mix.
Refrigerate for a few hours or until ready to serve.

NOTES: 1. Two or 3 slices of crumbled cooked Bacon may be added for additional flavor.

Yes to the bacon.

What about a teas. of dry mustard instead of the Dijon?

I added some dried mustard to my ground ham and pickle salad the other day and it hit the spot! Damn, that stuff is TOO good!

I would use the celery. It sounds a little tangy, which I love.

I don't like celery so I left that out, but I might add a little celery seeds. Yes the dry mustard would work, and I do have a bottle of that.
