Ham Pasta Salad

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Simply Sarah

This is a great mayo based cold salad for the summer. When I was little, my mom would make a bowl and I would finish all of the leftovers the next day. Since my fiance hates onions, I stir them in last after I scoop his half into another bowl.

What a nice change from tuna! I would have never thought of using ham. I used the recipe for recipe#71967 and this was really good. Made for Fall PAC '08. Thank you for sharing!
