- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes; drain. Rinse macaroni with cold water until chilled; drain.
- Mix mayonnaise, white vinegar, seasoned salt, sugar, garlic powder, and black pepper in a large bowl with a whisk until smooth. Stir tuna, baby shrimp, cucumber, and sweet onion into the mayonnaise mixture to coat ingredients completely; add chopped eggs and stir. Pour chilled macaroni into the bowl and stir; top with sliced eggs. Garnish salad with paprika.
- Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour to overnight before serving.
- Cook's Note:
- I personally don't care for celery in salads, so I use cucumber instead, but you can definitely substitute celery in this recipe.
- This is one of those salads that tastes even better the next day, thus my recommendation is to chill overnight, if possible.

Really good! Just made and just had a bowl so I can't wait to taste later or even tomorrow as the cooks notes state it's better the next day.
