Prep 25 mins Chill 4 hrs
Ham and Pasta Salad
  • 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  teaspoon  dried dillweed
  • 2  medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1  green pepper, cut into half rings
  •  Lettuce leaves

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.
