Easy Pasta Salad

With temperatures in Michigan creeping up little by little I wanted to make a little pasta salad to go with our burgers.  There are so many dressing combinations for pasta salads, mayo or miracle whip with sour cream, mayo or miracle whip with milk, the list can go on and on.  This time I wanted to do something a little different, well different from my traditional Miracle Whip whipped into pasta and a few vegetables.

This time I left my comfort zone and added a little sweet relish, mustard (which I usually only eat on a hot dog), and a little bit of vinegar and a sprinkling of sugar.  I was happy with the final result and Walt loved it.  Try it, let us know what you think!
