I liked all of the flavor combination except the red onion. It overpowered everything else. Very easy to make. I'll skip the onion next time but definitely try this again. Maybe more pineapple.

Very delicious recipe - but I agree that the onion is too overpowering. I bought the smallest red onion I could find and used half and that was still too much. I suggest maybe 1/4 small red onion. Otherwise very easy and quick to make!

Most family members enjoyed this. I think it has a great flavor however I did double the dressing portion. The 2 year old even ate it!

This is delicious. Great alternative to a sandwich for lunch. The amount of mustard is not indicated. I used about 1/3 cup. I also added a bit of orange juice to make it a little less dry and some green pepper just because I'm a recipe rebel.

Very eash and good! I like onion but too much will give me heartburn. So I added maybe 1/4 c. of chopped onion. I didn't have left over ham (I don't cook hams) so I got a slab of black forest ham from the deli when it was on sale. Only suggestion maybe a little more dressing. I used 2 T. of Dijon. Good summer salad.

I love this recipe. I used fresh pineapple instead of canned. And edamame instead of peas. It is a really refreshing lunch!

This is great but the 4 serving size with 1 cup of couscous makes a LOT! I'm going to cut back next time. I used mandarain oranges instead of pineapple (thought I had some and didn't) and it was great. I do plan to use pinapple next time.

I wasn't a big fan but my husband liked it. This was the first time I had eaten a ham salad and I think it's just not my thing. I used quinoa instead of couscous.
