    I like this pasta salad at barbecues because it contains peas and sweet gherkins which give it some bite.

    Serves: 7 

    • 1 cup macaroni
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/4 cup Ranch-style salad dressing
    • 1 teaspoon white sugar
    • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
    • salt to taste
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 2 cups frozen green peas, thawed
    • 3 spring onions, chopped
    • 2 medium sweet gherkins, chopped
    • 2 stalks celery, chopped
    • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook pasta until al dente, rinse under cold water and drain.
    2. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover completely with cold water. Bring water to a boil. Cover, remove from heat and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.
    3. Whisk together the salad dressing, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper.
    4. In a large bowl, combine the pasta, eggs, peas, spring onion, gherkins, celery and cheese. Pour dressing over salad; mix well and chill before serving.
