Pasta Salad

Ingredients:

2 cups cooked spiral pasta or macaroni, drained, rinsed, cooled (I used a little of both)

2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped

1/4 cup shredded carrots

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/3 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

2 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard

pepper, to taste

You can really add anything you want to this salad or take out things you do not like. Add ¼ to ½ cup of any of the following: frozen green peas, green or red bell pepper, red onion, cherry tomatoes, etc.

Preparation:

Stir mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, salt, mustard, and pepper to make dressing. Combine all recipe ingredients and stir well. Taste and adjust seasonings. Chill before serving.
