This is a tangy pasta salad that is quick to make and tasty to eat. It's great as a side dish or a light meal. I first made this for my husband and myself because it was too hot in our apartment to cook for any length of time and too hot to want a hot meal!

  • While pasta cooks, mix mayonnaise, pickles, mustard, vinegar, sugar, pepper, celery salt, and garlic powder together in a bowl. Stir dressing into cold noodles until fully coated. Add additional pickle chunks to taste. Serve chilled.

Cook's Notes:

You can use whatever kind of pasta you have.

You can always put the noodles in the freezer for a couple of minutes to cool them faster.
