We had leftover ham from a family party. What to do since it’s not hot soup season? In typical fashion, I opened my fridge and put together a quick dinner. Save this recipe for when you have leftover ham or get some thick slices from the deli counter in your grocery store.
Ham Salad Fresh! (serves 6)
3/4 pound elbow noodle pasta, cooked
2-1/2 cups cooked ham, diced
1-1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
15.5 ounce can navy beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/3 cup poppyseed dressing (we prefer Marie’s brand)
1/3 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
fresh chives for garnish
6 Romain lettuce leaves
In a large bowl, combine pasta, ham, tomatoes, beans, and onions. In a separate bowl, mix together the dressing and yogurt. Pour dressing over salad ingredients. Place lettuce leaves on individual salad plates. Scoop a cup of salad onto Romaine leaf. Garnish with fresh chives. Enjoy!
