Pasta Salad


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.


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.
