"A family favorite for years! Simple, but easy to change to suit your tastes. A favorite substitution is bacon for the ham!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I give this recipe high marks for its simplicity and flavor. The ingredients are ones I'm likely to have on-hand in the pantry or deep-freeze. It is good as a side in a buffet-style luncheon, or handy to-go lunch in a pita pocket. It is a nice break from tuna or chicken salad. I will make this again.
I had horribly overcooked ham leftover and this recipe saved the day! This salad is delicious! It came together in under 5 minutes. I did use 1/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup mayo instead of 3/4 cup mayo and found that to be plenty. I also used 1 tbsp of dried minced onions (instead of fresh), which I found gave a pleasing crunch to the salad. I rolled this up in a tortilla and had a fantastic lunch! Thanks for this recipe!
Just wanted to answer lovestohost question about what this salad actually is :) I didn't see a way to edit my description for a submitted recipe, but in our family its served as a side dish at barbeques, picnics, and potlucks. Its usually placed with the salad options. Enjoy!
I think it was the same time last year that I last tried this recipe because I love green peas and had ham left over from Christmas dinner and I just really loved how this salad turned out! I especially love that it's all ingredients I usually have on hand anyway :-) I think last time I made it, I added a little bit if diced celery too to add an little extra crunch!
This is a super easy to throw together salad. Per personal preference, I'll probably cut the mayo w/sour cream if I make this again because I'm not a big fan of mayo. Mr. LTH enjoyed this and so did I, but I'm not quite sure what it is? Is it a sandwich spread? Is it a side? I appreciate the versatility, but I'm not sure what I'd make this as. THANKS for the recipe, AuLait!
