Italian Pasta Salad with Ham
Pasta salad is a favorite anytime of the year. But our Italian Pasta Salad with Ham is especially good for spring. Leftover Easter ham would be great in this salad. But you don’t need an excuse to buy Oklahoma-made Schwab’s ham, which is always in season. This pasta salad makes four to six generous servings, making it great for lunch or dinner. It’s loaded with Scissortail Farms spinach and thyme, Leonard Mountain olives and sundried tomatoes. Dianne’s Legendary Italian Salad Dressing rounds out the flavor. This pasta salad also starts with the best pasta in Oklahoma, locally made Della Terra fusilli pasta. Della Terra is an artisan small-batch pasta maker with unique shapes and a homemade quality you can taste.
