Too sleepy to blog
--Bachelor’s Favorite Ham Salad
Bachelor’s Favorite Ham Salad
High Plains Country Cooking Copyright 1993
2 cups uncooked pasta, elbows or twists
2 ½ cups cooked ham, cut into 2-inch strips
1 cup celery slices
½ cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
¼ cup white wine vinegar
1 cup firmly packed chopped fresh parsley
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 small clove garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain. Add ham strips, celery and onions. (What onions? There aren't onions listed in the ingredients? I added some.) Blend together mayonnaise, vinegar, parsley, cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Toss with pasta mixture. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours to blend flavors. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
I made this hearty ham and pasta salad on a night when I made grilled venison because I knew I wouldn't eat the venison. This salad was a meal in itself.
I didn't even realize I didn't post yesterday until it was much later in the day. I'm sleep deprived. Severely sleep deprived. I'm too old for this! I can barely keep my eyes open.
