Bowtie Pasta Salad

The flavors of this pasta salad go so well together! My husband and daughter especially loved it and probably had thirds or fourths the other night when we had it with grilled chicken. It was even great 2 days later for lunch. Delicious!

Bowtie Pasta Salad

2 cups uncooked bowtie pasta
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
2 cups diced ham
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 cups small cubed sharp cheddar cheese (8oz block, cubed)

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling , salted water according to package directions. Drain. Rinse until cooled and then allow to sit and dry a bit.

In a small bowl mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, mustard, sugar, pepper, dill, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl combine prepared pasta, grapes, ham, green onions, and cheese. Toss with the dressing. Cover and chill for at least 6 hours.
