I’m a little late today since I had so many posts that wound up going up yesterday. I really didn’t want to inundate my poor followers with so much. Today is Letter H is the A-Z April Blogging Challenge and I went for Ham. We had tons of ham leftover from Easter and I wanted to find something to do with all the leftovers. This, wonderful, very traditional southern dish, was it.
Ham and Pasta Salad | Classic Southern
- 2 cups cooked pasta
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 Tablespoons parsley finely chopped
- 3/4 cups chopped celery
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1/2 cup dill pickles chopped
- 2 cups chopped ham
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
Cook your pasta until tender, according to package directions.
Drain and run cold water over the pasta to cool it off. Drain all water.
In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, garlic and parsley.
In a large bowl, pour in the pasta and add the mayo sauce and mix together well.
Add the celery, onion, dill pickles and ham and mix together.
Gently stir in the shredded cheese.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.
