Ham and Macaroni Salad

The Menu:
Ham and Macaroni Salad
 

The Original Recipe:
I found this on Babycenter's Cooking for your Family recipe board. I am not a pasta fan, but I wanted something different to make for a get together we had. This is not your traditional Macaroni Salad. This was good. My grandma loved it. I guess she makes something similar to this. It had great flavors. You need to make sure you make it ahead of time, though, to let the flavors blend.
 
Ham and Macaroni Salad

1 cup uncooked macaroni
ham, cooked and cubed or cut in strips
Cheddar cheese, cut in cubes
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup bell pepper
2 tablespoons chopped pimento

1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cook macaroni as directed on package, drain and cool. Mix with the next 7 ingredients. Blend mayonnaise, mustard and salt. Add to macaroni mixture; toss lightly. Chill and serve. Serves 4 as a side dish.
