Cook pasta per directions in large stock pot with liberally salted water. Hard boil a dozen eggs. Run cold water over them and peel.
Mix dressing and let sit until everything is ready to be mixed.
I know there are differences of opinion on whether to rinse the cooked pasta but I do mine. So, rinse pasta in cold water and thoroughly drain. Add in chopped ingredients and mix with dressing. NOTE: This is better if made the day before needed.
NOTE: If salad is dry the next day just make up 1/2 or whole dressing recipe to add and toss. ALSO, you can use potatoes instead of pasta and it's just as good. :)
