We always have a ham salad when I make ham.

1 box of any type of noodles ( seashell, twisty, wagon wheels) cooked per package drained and rinsed with cool water
Chopped cold ham (amount varies with how much ham I want in salad or how much is leftover)
1 can peas drained
From this point on you can use the item or not up to your families taste and what you have around
1 chopped onion
1 chopped green pepper
1 bunch chopped celery
sliced radishes
cubes of cheddar cheese or leftover shredded cheese
drained jarred pimentos
chopped boiled egg (after Easter good use for boiled eggs)
Now back to must uses
Mayo or salad dressing or ranch dressing to your taste mixture of 2 or more okay too
salt and pepper to taste
sprinkle of paparika
Parsley either dried or fresh

Mix all together and chill

Ham and bean soup is also a favorite here when we have ham.

I add it to potato salad to carry in my lunch. There is always good ol' ham sandwiches (favorite around our house). When cooking, I dice it and add it to cheese and macaroni. Add it to scrambled eggs or hash browns. We make fried rice and rice noodles with thin sliced and chopped pieces.
