Cool Pasta Salad

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mstopcat

I love this salad in the summer time when I can use fresh vegetables from my husband's garden. It's a favorite at covered dish dinners.

I used a pound of pasta and didn't measure out the mayo (I use Hellmann's light). The tomatoes and cucumber add a really fresh taste to basic macaroni salad. I love the green olives in it...I mixed them instead of just putting them on top. I also added some chopped onions. Very good recipe for the summer BBQ season!
