Awesome But Weird Pasta Salad Recipe--TNT

I have made this pasta salad and if you follow the directions and don't eat it until the day after you make it and have left out of frig for about half an hour it is wonderful. BUT the third day the onion overpowers everything and it really isn't very tasty then, so try and eat it all the second day.

Awesome Ham Pasta Salad
6 Servings

8 ounces ziti pasta
1 pound cooked ham, cubed
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 large red onion, coarsely chopped
15 small sweet pickles, chopped, juice reserved
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 1/2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced


1 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

2 In a large bowl, mix together the drained pasta, ham, peppers, onion, pickles and tomatoes.

3 In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, beef bouillon granules, vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic and 1/2 cup of reserved pickle juice. Fold into the salad and toss gently until evenly coated. Chill overnight to allow the flavors to blend. Serve near room temperature.
