Dilly Ham Macaroni Salad Recipe


I hope you're having a fantastic week so far! Today's recipe is Dilly Ham Macaroni Salad. I absolutely love fresh dill, so this recipe is right up my alley! Dill just adds such a fresh flavor to anything and it's wonderful in a pasta salad. It's also quick and easy to make and would be a great addition to any BBQ! 

I have a confession. I am addicted to collecting vintage pyrex! This bowl came from my Auntie Linnea as part of a set and I just adore them! I'm going to try taking more recipe pics with my pyrex so I can share with all of you! They are just so homey and remind me of my Mom and Grandma's sets from when I was little. I've had great luck finding them at thrift stores and garage sales, and for great prices! Love!!

I hope you enjoy this pasta salad! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Dilly Ham Macaroni Salad (print recipe)

What you need:
1 1/2 cups mayo
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/2 cup red onion, diced
2 cups cooked elbow macaroni
7 ounces ham, cut into small cubes
3/4 cup frozen baby peas, thawed
2 ribs celery with leaves, sliced
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
salt and pepper as desired

In a small bowl mix together the mayo, sour cream, dijon, salt and pepper. In a larger bowl, combine onion, macaroni, ham, peas, celery, dill and sauce. Refrigerate until using. If you are making it the day before serving it, you may need to make more of the sauce if it gets too dry.
