Ham and Pasta Salad
Ingredients
1/2
cup orzo, tripolini, tiny tube macaroni, or tiny star macaroni
1
cup frozen mixed peas and carrots
8
ounces fully cooked boneless ham, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
4
green onions, sliced
1/2
cup plain low-fat yogurt
2
tablespoons reduced-calorie creamy cucumber salad dressing
1/4
2
medium tomatoes, sliced
1

Directions
  1. In a medium saucepan bring a large amount of water to boiling. Add pasta and frozen mixed peas and carrots. Return to boiling, then reduce heat slightly. Boil, uncovered, for 5 to 8 minutes or until pasta and carrots are tender. Immediately drain mixture in a colander, then rinse with cold water and drain again.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl stir together pasta, peas and carrots, ham, and green onions. In a small mixing bowl stir together yogurt, cucumber dressing, and dillweed. Pour yogurt mixture over pasta and vegetable mixture. Toss until well coated. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours.
  3. To serve, arrange the tomato slices and green pepper on 4 lettuce-lined salad plates. Stir the pasta mixture and divide mixture among plates. Makes 4 servings.
