Pasta & broccoli salad  Tried Tested

I saw a recipe for an Amish broccoli salad on this page a while ago, and wanted to make a similar one. So I ended up with a macaroni, broccoli, and cheddar combination, and the sauce was basically a tartar spin-off. Of course, I’m terrible at keeping track of the quantities of what I use, but here is a rough idea:
1 head of broccoli, chopped into bite sized pieces
3 cups of cooked macaroni
1 cup of sharp cheddar, cut into tiny squares
1 tiny onion (or half a medium onion), very finely diced
3 big scoops of mayonnaise
3 heaped teaspoons of sweet relish
About a tablespoon of dried parsley
About a tablespoon of sugar
1tsp onion powder
1tsp garlic powder
Freshly ground black pepper

Mix the whole shebang together at least an hour before you plan to eat so that the onions mellow out and flavours blend. It’s the only side dish you need for a wonderful meal!
