Ham and “just about any cheese” salads are super-delicious and takes no time to prepare at all! Very similar to the old fashion “Chef’s Salad” and just as tasty. Try you hand at making some homemade salad dressing to go on your salad.
Salads are always a great choice for any meal because there are so many things you can add to bump up the nutrition level.
Mix Romaine lettuce with a little green leaf lettuce to get that extra Vitamin K! Did you know that green leaf lettuce has twice the amount of Vitamin C than Romaine lettuce and more Vitamin K!

We love using mozzarella or Swiss cheese in our salad. Don’t worry, shredded or cubed cheese works just fine, and if you want to take the taste to another level, warm the ham and slightly melt the cheese. Double Yum.
There are so many delicious recipes that can be made using diced ham. If you don’t have any leftover ham to us, look for packages of diced ham in your grocery store and keep some on hand for quick and delicious meals.
Diced ham can also be used in many of the best soup recipes, and it’s so convenient! Don’t forget to toss some ham bits in your scrambled eggs in the morning.
