Awesome Ham Pasta Salad

Rating: Unrated
I never seem to make enough of this salad. When people see the recipe, they look at me as if I am a little odd...but when they eat it they can't seem to stop! This recipe is great for kids and adults alike. The garlic is optional. Also, to lighten up the salad, substitute light mayonnaise, light sour cream, and turkey ham.

Ham and Cheese Salad

After making your own ham salad you'll never buy it prepared again. I first tried adding cheese to ham salad when I had to stretch a small amount of ham to make sandwiches for my children's lunches. It worked and they loved it!

A variation from the traditional macaroni or pasta salad.

Salad with Prosciutto and Caramelized Pears and Walnuts

Rating: Unrated
An amazing salad that blends different flavors to impress your guests. The salad dressing is an orange vinaigrette. Try to use Asian pears in this salad, as they are best for flavor. But if you can't find Asian pears in your area, you can substitute Bosc or Anjou.

Homemade Deviled Ham Spread

Rating: Unrated
I searched for a recipe for this on this site and couldn't find one, so I winged it and it turned out very nicely. I had to make a second batch to take to the New Year's Eve party because the first batch disappeared. A great way to use leftover ham from holiday dinner to make a great spread for hearty crackers or rye toast points. Also good as a sandwich.

Nippy Pork Salad

Rating: Unrated
Delicious pork that can be served on sandwiches, crackers, or just on the side with another salad. Best if left in fridge at least 4 hours before serving. Great next day, too.

Insalata di Riso (Italian Rice Salad)

Rating: Unrated
Traditional cold rice salad is considered fast food in Italy, used for picnics and lunches on the go. Great for hot days when you don't want to heat up the kitchen. Add a few drops of your favorite hot pepper sauce for a dash of spice if you like. Many Italians add a few tablespoons of mayonnaise at the end.
