  • While pasta is cooking chop various vegetables (you can add whatever you like ie: broccoli florets, califlower, peas,whatever).
  • Mix mayo, salad dressing, salt and pepper together in a bowl.
  • When pasta is done and has cooled slightly toss with the salad dressing mix, ham, and veggies.
  • This dish can be served at either room temperature or chilled.
I like this better the second day when the flavors have had a chance to meld together. It can be a healthy snack after school or for a light lunch with veggies of your liking. You can make this low fat by changing the fat content of the dressing and mayo. I also like to leave out the mayo and ranch and toss with zesty Italian dressing. You can also add turkey or whatever meats you like for a balanced meal. Experiment to your liking!!!
