No fancy-doo French pasta salad is this. What we have here is a good old-fashioned macaroni salad, made with perfectly recognizable chunks of stuff any child can love. Leave the arugula to the grown-ups - this one's for you, kid.
2 cups cooked macaroni, (1 cup uncooked macaroni)
1 1/2 cups cooked ham, cut into 1/4-in. cubes
1 cup cubed cheddar, (1/4- in. cubes)
1/2 cup diced celery
1 dill pickle, chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise, (regular or low fat)
1 tbsp mustard, (Dijon, if you have it)
In a large bowl, toss together the macaroni, ham, cheese, celery and pickle. Stir in the mayonnaise and mustard until everything is evenly coated and creamy. Keep chilled until serving time.
