Ham & Artichoke Hearts Pasta Salad

The pasta is cooked but everything else is cold. The pasta can be cooked ahead and the salad assembled at any time.

  • 1/4 cup Greek olives, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbs snipped chives
  • 2 tbs snipped basil
  • 1 1/2 tbs Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 tbs white Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbs salad olive oil


  • Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Drain and rinse lightly with cool water.
  • Make vinaigrette:
  • Put mustard, vinegar and artichoke marinade into a small bowl.
  • Slowly whisk in olive oil.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large salad bowl.
