Cook pasta, al dente and according to package directions; drain and cool to room temperature.
In a large bowl, combine pasta, hot dogs, carrots, peas, celery and black olives (if using).
Combine the dressing ingredients in a small mason jar, screw on the lid tightly and shake it until the ingredients are nicely mixed together.
Pour the dressing into bowl with the pasta mixture and stir until everything is evenly coated with the dressing.
Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Serve cold.
