Directions

  1. Whisk mayonnaise, pickle relish, and milk in a bowl until combined; season with salt and black pepper. Chill in refrigerator while preparing remaining ingredients.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Gently stir ham, Cheddar cheese, peas, onion, celery, and pimento into pasta. Pour mayonnaise mixture over pasta mixture and toss to evenly coat.
  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours to overnight.

This was a nice way to use leftover ham. I like that it's easily thrown together w/freezer/pantry staples. I'm not a fan of the way the pasta absorbs all of the dressing, though. If I made this again, I think I'd dress it just prior to serving. I also chose to use dill relish, as opposed to sweet, per personal preference. THANKS for the recipe!
