Dress Up Your Leftover Ham

Ham-and-Pineapple Slaw

Do you have plenty of ham left over from Sunday and don’t know what to do with it? Try this nontraditional salad recipe, from Southern Living’s new cookbook, “101 Ways to Cook Southern” (Oxmoor House, $34.95) It gets a lively crunch from cabbage and a touch of sweetness from pineapple.

I found the pineapple a little too sweet for my tastes, so I added a half cup of chopped celery. It provided balance and a crisp texture. Onion would also work.

Cabbage for the slaw.

Ham-and-Pineapple Slaw Sandwiches

2 cups chopped cooked ham
3 cups shredded or chopped cabbage
1 (8-ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Lettuce or greens, optional
4 French sandwich rolls

Combine ham, cabbage, pineapple, mayonnaise, cheese, salt and pepper, stirring gently. Place lettuce or greens to bottoms of rolls, if using. Spoon on salad; cover with tops and serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings.
