    IngridH's Note:

    This is adapted from Kentaro Kobayashi's book Bento Love, which I find to be a great resource for lunchbox ideas. I especially turn to it when I need help with vegetable ideas, and this is one of my favorites from the book. The cheese is my own addition, cheddar just goes so well with broccoli and ham! Note- This is meant to be a side dish, if you want it to be your main (or only) lunch item, increase the quantities to match your appetite.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli, and cook until not quite done. (I just barely blanch it, as the remaining heat will continue the cooking while it cools) Drain, and set aside to cool.
    2. 2
      Cut the ham into 1/2 inch squares.
    3. 3
      Mix the cooled broccoli, ham, mayo, mustard, cheese, and pepper to taste.
    4. 4
      ** As this has mayo in it, be sure to pack your lunch with an ice pack to keep cool and safe until lunchtime!

      This is a great broccoli salad. I liked the ham in it. The mustard gave a great flavor. I used raw broccoli. Thanks Ingrid :) Made for PRMR tag game

      This made for a great lunch today. The ingredient amounts are perfect for one. This was very fast and easy to prepare. I blanched my broccoli for about one minute, but I think I would have liked it better just raw. The flavors of the ham, mustard and mayo were so nice. Yum. Thanks for a great lunchbox salad!! :)
