I had some leftover baked ham and wanted to fix something cool and different than a pasta salad. This time of year our temps are in the high 90's and the heat index is way over 100. By the time I get home from work, I do not want to cook anything. This salad was delicious and perfect for this sultry summer weather. The only substitution I made was I used an equal amount of the canned tropical fruit which contains pineapple, passion fruit, guava and mango. Your suggestion about using the dressing sparingly is a good one! We only used about half of what I made. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!
