"This is always a big hit at family picnics and parties. There are so many different ingredients you can add or remove to make it your own. It is one of my most requested salads. This dish is best if done the day before. I usually will leave it in the refrigerator overnight."

This pasta salad is very flavorful and I will definately make this again! I used sandwich meat because I did not have any cubed ham on hand. I followed the directions completely and think this should be made a day ahead as the pickle and red onion will marinate the mayo overnight. I also used Hellman's low-fat mayo to make it healthier.
