Pineapple and Ham Pasta Salad

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 13 mins

This is my favorite cold pasta salad. I'll eat it every day, every meal, until its gone. I love the dill and add more than the recipe suggests. This will feed an army. The number of servings is set at 8 but it seems more to me. I usually half the recipe unless I'm doing it for a potluck or company. Refrigeration time is not included in preparation or cook time. From Brand Name Recipes Cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain pineapple. In large bowl, combine pineapple, ham, red pepper, peas, celery and macaroni. To make dressing, in 1 quart measure, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, onion powder, black pepper and dill weed. Stir dressing into pineapple mixture. Refrigerate 3 to 4 hours before serving to allow flavors to blend.

i thought this was pretty good. i made the whole recipe and we ate it as a cool summer dinner. i liked the addition of the pineapple. i had to sub garlic powder for onion powder when i realized i didn't have any in my pantry, while i prayed it would still turn out okay. yeah for success!!
