Quick Ham & Bean Salad Recipe


Looking for a good side salad to take to the next BBQ or family gathering? This Easy Ham and Bean Salad is quick to put together and can be made a day or two ahead. It incorporates a few fresh vegetables with canned beans with a great sweet and sour dressing. The ham makes it suitable for a light main dish salad, but it’s also great with grilled meats or poultry as well as other picnic dishes.

Since this salad is colorful, it looks good on a buffet table and will be noticed at a potluck or get together (so that it will be eaten there and you won’t have to take any home with you). Since it contains beans, it’s full of fiber, as well as protein, iron, and vitamin C. This is a “must-try” salad that will be enjoyed by all.
