4 or 5 radishes, sliced
1 small cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 cup chopped green onions
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 cup shredded cheese (I use cheddar, can use what you like)
1 cup fresh or frozen sweet peas, uncooked (can cook if you want)
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried basil or 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip


Cook pasta according to package directions to al dente and drain well. Combine pasta, eggs, cherry tomatoes, radishes, cucumber, green onions, green pepper, cheese and peas. Toss well with spoon. Sprinkle on celery seeds, salt, basil, sugar and vinegar. Add mayonnaise and mix all ingredients well with spoon. Refrigerate at least 3 or 4 hours to let flavors marry. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

    This is very good. But 1/2 cup is not enough mayonnaise had to add more.
