Pasta Salad

Today I made my daughter's favorite pasta salad and I thought I would share my recipe. Actually I don't have a written recipe. I always just make it by tossing in a little of this and a little of that. I've made it so many times it is like I just know what to put into it.

Cook one 16 oz box of Muellers Rotini Twists. Drain and let cool
Hard Boil 6 eggs, peel and chop
1 cup of chopped celery
1/2 of a large bell pepper, chopped (you can use yellow, red or green, whichever you pefer)
1 large peeled cucumber, chopped
1 cup sweet pickle salad cubes
About one cup of mayonnaise
Salt to taste

First stir the mayonnaise and pasta together, mixing in the mayo evenly.
Then mix in all the other ingredients.
You can add more or less of each ingredient, depending what you like.
This makes a large portion and of course, should be refrigerated. It can be kept well for about 3 or 4 days.
And here it is in my gallon size Glad Ware, ready to be sealed and refrigerated until mealtime!

That sounds good! I don't like mustard in my salads so I might have to try this one! It also doesn't sound (or look) like it is drown in mayo, like most are. TFS!!
