Pasta Salad with Ham
I enjoyed making this new side dish recipe for Marilyn's birthday.
8 ounces pasta, rotini (or whatever)
8 ounces diced ham
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper, red, green, or combination
1 can (4 ounces) sliced black olives
1 large clove garlic, mashed and finely minced
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
3/4 cup mayonnaise
Cook pasta in boiling salted water following package directions. Drain, rinse, and put in a large bowl. Add the diced ham, onion, bell pepper, black olives, minced garlic, parsley, pepper, and salt. Toss to mix. Add relish and mayonnaise and mix well. Add more mayonnaise, if desired.
