Ultimate Pasta Salad

Ultimate Pasta Salad

3 cups dry pasta
cheddar cheese, fine diced
red onion, fine diced
bell pepper, fine diced
celery, fine dices
cucumber, fine diced
carrots, fine diced
zucchini, fine diced
black olives, sliced
grape or cherry tomatoes, quartered
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped

1 3/4 cup mayonnaise*
1 Tbsp. creole seasoning
1/2 Tbsp. black pepper
1/2 Tbsp. garlic powder
1/2 Tbsp. onion powder
1 tsp. celery salt
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
olive oil

1.  Cook pasta al dente, according to package directions. Drain and rinse thoroughly in cold water.
2.  Get all your ingredients ready in a big bowl and toss with cold pasta.
3.  Mix together all the dressing ingredients. Drizzle in olive oil - a little at a time - until you get the good consistency for mixing.
4.  Gently mix the dressing in with the pasta and veggies. Chill several hours or overnight.

*I used the Kraft mayo with olive oil. It has a much better flavor.
