How to Make Smokey Maple Ham & Pasta Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil pasta according to package directions.
  2. Dice ham, eggs, onion and red bell pepper. Grate cheese. In small bowl mix together mayo, mustard, pepper and Maple spice. I used 1 c of mayo, but added a little more after stirring. You can add more in the end if you like it creamier.
  3. Place eggs, ham, onion, red bell, pickle relish, and cheese in large bowl with pasta and mix together. Add mayo/mustard/spice mix and stir to coat evenly.
    NOTE: Taste before adding additional salt, the Maple spice is quite salty.
