The first time I made this main dish, my son's friends cleaned out the salad bowl—I didn't get even a taste! The next time I made it, I knew why it had disappeared so fast: The crunchy cabbage, tender tidbits of ham, subtle sweetness of honey and zesty hint of mustard make a perfect combination of tastes and textures. (Be sure to serve yourself first!)

"I used some leftover ham (not quite the cup the recipe asked for). I also added an 8 oz can of crushed pineapple, drained. I used a bag of angel hair shredded cabbage. This was extremely easy to make and delicious. Now to see how well the leftovers will keep in the refrigerator. I can see how this would be a great potluck dish. I will definitely make this again."

"I made this but used leftover cooked chicken in place of the ham. I also added some shredded carrot to the mix."

"This is a great recipe for a hot summer evening, and a good way to use up leftover ham. Plus, it doesn't use mayonnaise. However, I thought it needed a little extra color and nutrition, so I added sliced baby carrot. My family liked it."
