My entire family found this salad ultimately pleasureable. I added shrimp and boiled eggs. We cannot agree on using Mayonaise or Miracle Whip in this kind of salad, so I always use half and half then we are both contented. I tripled the recipe and enjoyed it over the holiday weekend so I didn't have to slave in the kitchen. It was so nice,,,Thank you sincerely for taking time to share this simple recipe. Goes with anything.

This ham salad was a sure-fire family pleaser. A combination of very simple ingredients that all went well together for a good chunky pasta salad. I used up some left-over smoked ham I had in the freezer. I didn't get 10 servings out of it though, more like 4-5. Maybe we are just hogs. ;) Thank you for the recipe.

Yummy! Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe. The only change I made was using 1/2 Miracle Whip & 1/2 Mayo. Very good!!
