Ingredients You'll Need
10 hard boiled eggs, cooled
1 lb. box of Ditallini Macaroni, cooked according to directions
Oregon Tillamook cheddar cheese, cubed
Finely chopped onion, one cup
Chopped dill pickles, one cup
3/8 oz. can of sliced black olives
Dill pickle juice, 1/2 cup
1 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1 1/2 cup of Miracle Whip
1 tablespoon of yellow mustard
2 teaspoons of sugar
While Macaroni is boiling, combine eight of the hard boiled eggs (reserving two for later) and the next four ingredients in large bowl. Once Macaroni is al dente, drain and run cold water until pasta is cold. Drain thoroughly and add to the mixture. Gently stir through to combine.
Prepare dressing in separate medium bowl. Mix all dressing ingredients and whip until smooth and thick.
Slice the remaining two hard boiled eggs and carefully top over salad mixture and sprinkle with smoked paprika.
