"Chopped ham or crumbled cooked bacon is a great addition, I sometimes add in chopped feta cheese instead of the cheddar cheese, plan ahead this salad must chill for at least 3 or more hours before serving the longer chilling time the better"

I've been making this for years, and it is always a huge hit. I usually do seashell pasta, add diced ham, skip the eggs, and use half mayonnaise and half sour cream. I also opt for the dry mustard instead of the prepared. Whenever I need a go-to dish for a potluck, this is right at the top of my list. The sweet pickles give it a little extra something that my family loves; the one time I didn't add them I was told it didn't taste as good as usual.
