Ham and Orzo Salad

Ham and Orzo Salad

 This recipe is one of our favorites to make with leftover ham (or good quality ham purchased from the deli).

 2 cups diced ham
½ cup chopped green onions
1 cup thinly sliced fennel (or celery)
¼ cup finely chopped parsley
1 cup mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 ½ cups dried orzo

Combine the ham, green onions, fennel, parsley, mayonnaise, Tabasco, and pepper in a large bowl.  Mix well.

Cook the orzo in boiling, salted water until tender.  Drain.  Add to the ham mixture and toss to combine.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. 

Serves 4 to 6
