Ingredients

  • 12 ounces rotini cooked
  • 3-4 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 cup frozen peas thawed
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 4 ounces white cheddar
  • 4 ounces smoked Gruyere or smoked cheddar
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/8 cup apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta according to package directions.
  • Drain and throw peas in with the pasta while it drains; this will allow them to thaw. If preferred, you can also cook the peas with the pasta.
  • Boil the eggs.
  • Peel and chop the cucumber.
  • Slice the cherry tomatoes in half.
  • Shred both cheeses.
  • Mix together the pasta, vegetables, and cheeses.
  • To make the dressing, mix the mayo, Dijon mustard, sugar, garlic powder, celery salt, and apple cider vinegar. It will be a very thin sauce.
  • Then pour the dressing over the salad and mix well. I used two wooden spoons to kinda “throw” the pasta salad in the bowl.
  • Peel the boiled eggs, slice eggs, and place on top of the salad; you can also crumble, if desired.
  • Chill until ready to serve.
  • Serve and enjoy!
