Hamslaw Salad Recipe

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!)
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 1/2 cup dairy sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion, divided

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup toasted broken pecans


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine dressing ingredients except for 1 tablespoon of green onion. Mix well; cover. Chill. Toss together ham and cabbage; add dressing, stirring gently to coat. Just before serving, sprinkle with reserved green onion and pecans. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"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."
