Pasta Salad

Pasta Salad
This is probably the best the best Pasta Salad that I’ve ever had. My husband works for the Mennonites and I got the recipe from them. Every where I take it people love it. If you try it you will be hook too.

1 lb. macaroni (I like using the Rotini (spiral) macaroni)
2 cups real mayonnaise ( not salad dressing)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 T mustard
3 T vinegar
1 tsp. celery salt
Chopped vegetables of your choice. I add cauliflower, broccoli, carrots. Sometimes a small onion diced really fine.
Cook the macaroni in a large pan. You will be using the entire box. While this is cooking I usually make the dressing, just put everything in a large bowl and mix. You do want to mix till the sugar is dissolved. Decide on what vegetables you want to use. The broccoli, carrots and cauliflower give it a really pretty color. After the macaroni is done you will want to drain and rinse in cold water a couple times. Mix everything in a very large bowl, cover with a lid. Place in the refrigerator to chill. The salad taste better when all the flavors have blended together. So make this up a day ahead.
If the salad seems dry, just add a little milk. It will help to moisten everything.

This is great for weddings, reunions or any family gatherings.
