Mom’s Macaroni Salad ~ Creamy Pasta Salad Loaded with Ham, Peas and Cheese!
The hubby has requested this salad since were were married I think. I had some leftover ham in the fridge so I decided to attempt this recipe. It really wasn’t an “attempt” as it’s a pretty simple recipe, but this was round two on it!
The first time I made this I didn’t have his mother’s recipe and he just didn’t think it tasted right so after that I learned, always get the original! I bugged his sister and she delivered so I had the actual recipe this time.
I’m proud to say his whole face lit up when he saw that I had made this salad. This salad must be his favorite because he even remembers his mom made it for graduation! He then quickly dished himself an entire bowl and snuck off to the basement to watch his “shows” and enjoy the salad.
This would be perfect for all your summer grilling and time at the lake!
