cups diced cooked ham
cup sliced celery
cup chopped red bell pepper
cup dill pickle relish, drained
oz Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend, diced (2 cups)
cup ranch salad dressing
cup chopped fresh chives
Cook and drain pasta as directed on package, adding peas during last 2 to 3 minutes of cooking time. Rinse with cold water to cool. Drain well.
Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix ham, celery, bell pepper, pickle relish and cheese. In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients.
Add pasta and peas to salad; stir gently to mix. Add mayonnaise mixture; toss to coat. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until serving time.
Any small pasta shape can be used for this salad. But instead of the shells, why not try macaroni or rotini?
