Garden Pasta Salad

I made this salad for a Father's Day cookout last week and it was really good. I thought that I would share!

1/2 pkg. rotini, uncooked
2 cups fresh broccoli florets (I used frozen)
1 cup sliced carrot
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 T white wine vinegar
1 T dijon mustard
1/2 t salt
1/4 t ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/3 cup chopped onion

Cook pasta according to package directions, adding broccoli and carrot to pasta cooking water during last 2 minutes. Drain pasta and vegetables; rinse with cold water to cool quickly. In large bowl, stir together mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper and garlic. Add pasta, broccoli, carrot, red pepper and onion; toss to coat well. Cover; refrigerate.
