- 1/2 lb. dry macaroni pasta (about 3 cups dry)
- 1 cup roughly chopped dill pickles
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup peas
- 1/2 cup diced red onion
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup dill pickle juice (the juice from the pickle jar)
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Cook the pasta to al dente, according to it's package directions. Run the cooked and drained pasta under cold water for 1 minute to cool completely.
- Add the cooked and cooled pasta to a large bowl. Add the chopped pickles, cheddar cheese, peas, and red onion.
- In a medium bowl, add the mayonnaise, pickle juice, mustard, dill weed, and black pepper. Whisk until well combined.
- Pour the dressing over the pasta. Stir well. It will look like there is way too much dressing, but the pasta will soak it up.
- Cover and refrigerate the pasta salad for a minimum of two hours to let the pasta absorb the dressing.
If the pasta salad seems a little dry after it has chilled, add a little more pickle juice to loosen it up.
