Martha's Macaroni salad

1/2 pound of salad macaroni cooked
6 hard boiled eggs chopped in small pieces
1 bunch of green onions sliced thin
1 cup sweet dill pickles (recipe to follow)
3/4 cup cheddar cheese (optional)
1/4 cup chopped black olives sliced (optional)
1 1/2 chopped tomatoes (no seeds)
2 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1 Tab. mustard
salt and pepper to taste
Cook macaroni and drain, add next 6 ingredinents, set aside. Mix mayonnaise and mustard together, add to salad mix. If it seems to dry add alittle more mayonnaise. add salt and pepper to taste. There are two tricks to this salad. Ingredients need to be cut in small pieces, and you have to use sweet dill pickles.
