1/2 cup mayonnaise

3/4 cup sour cream

2 teaspoons white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon sugar

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup frozen green peas, thawed

1/3 cup chopped celery

1 1/2 cups diced ham

1/3 cup black olives

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, sour cream, white wine vinegar, sugar, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and black pepper until well combined.

In a large trifle bowl or glass dish, start layering the ingredients. Begin with a layer of chopped romaine lettuce, followed by cooked and drained macaroni pasta, diced red bell pepper, finely diced red onion, thawed green peas, chopped celery, diced ham, black olives, dressing, and shredded cheddar cheese.

Continue layering until all ingredients are used, finishing with a layer of shredded cheddar cheese on top.

Cover the dish tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 5 hours to allow the flavors to meld.

Just before serving, toss the salad gently to evenly distribute the dressing and ingredients.

Serve chilled and enjoy your delicious Layered Pasta Salad!
