Broccoli Noodle Salad

With both Broccoli and peas coming in fresh right now we are eating lots of salads. This is one of our favorite.  I have added additional add ins such as chopped black olives, diced ham, chopped zucchini or tomatoes. Get creative and add whatever your family likes!

2 carrots shredded
1/2 small onion finely diced
1 head of broccoli finely chopped
1 cup frozen peas
3 hard boiled eggs finely chopped
crumbled crisp bacon to taste (for garnish)


1 cup mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 Tablespoons honey
3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup half and half
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions eldente.  ( DO NOT OVERCOOK)
Drain pasta and place in large bowl
Add peas, shredded carrots, diced oniopn, broccoli and chopped eggs.
Toss and set aside
In a separate bowl mix dressing ingredients and stir well to mix.
Add to pasta vegetable mixture and toss well.
