Recipe by Sandylee
This salad is the perfect choice for a family gathering or pot luck. A pasta salad with ham, fresh grapes, cheese, and a creamy dill dressing. There isn't any reason you couldn't add other favorite salad ingredients...small grape tomatoes, bell peppers, red onion, etc. Or...How about cubed grilled chicken and pineapple tibbits? The variations are endless...so please leave your suggestions...I love salads and variety.
