Hawaiian Pasta Salad

Have you ever made a dish because you happened to have the combination of ingredients on hand? I made this pasta dish because I happened to have half a bag of bow ties, some leftover ham and few pineapple rings. Funny thing is, the salad was really tasty and I would actually go out and buy these ingredients to make it again.

Hawaiian Pasta Salad

  • 8 oz rotini or bow tie pasta
  • 1 (14oz) can pineapple tidbits, juice reserved
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 2 cups diced ham
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup mayonnaise or dressing
  • ¼ cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • ⅓ cup pineapple juice
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • black pepper to taste


Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and run under cold water.
Whisk together all dressing ingredient until smooth.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl gently toss with dressing, Refrigerate 2 hours before serving.
