1 C. Elbow macaroni
1-1/2 C. cooked Ham, cubed (8 oz.)
1 C. Monterey Jack or Cheddar Cheese, cubed (4 oz.)
1 C. frozen Peas
1 stalk Celery, thinly sliced (1/2 C.)
1/4 C. Onion, finely chopped
1/2 C. Mayonnaise (I prefer Hellmann'sİ)
1/4 C. Sweet Pickle Relish
Dash ground Black Pepper
1-2 Tbsp. Milk, optional

Cook macaroni according to pkg. directions. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water. In a large bowl, add macaroni, ham, cheese, peas, celery and onion; toss gently to mix.
In a small bowl stir together mayonnaise, pickle relish, milk and pepper. Pour dressing over macaroni mixture, toss gently to coat.
Cover and chill for 4-24 hours. Prior to serving, if salad appears to be too dry, stir in milk.
