Food Storage Meals and Menu Planning - Lunch: Ham and Pasta Salad!

OK, so this might be one of those
"I Dare YOU To Make This"
kind of recipes,
BUT . . . You have to try it!
SPAM and Pasta Salad
I think this can be a scary ingredient for some of
us to try, but it really is good and Spam
can be stored on a shelf for 3-4 years.
You've probably eaten it at a Chinese Resturant at
one time or another in the SP-Ham Fried Rice.
I bet you LOVED IT!
Recipe Ingredients:
10 cups Cooked and Cooled Noodles
1 (15 oz.) can Spam Lite, Diced
1 cup Pineapple chunks, Drained
1 cup Cooked and Cooled Freeze-Dried Peas
1 (15 oz.) can Corn, Drained
2 tsp. Dried Onion
2 tsp. Dried Minced Chives
2 Tbsp. Hydrated Dried Celery
4 1/2 tsp. Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 (16 oz.) bottle Draft Coleslaw Dressing
3 Tbsp. Malt or Cider Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Oil
4 1/2 tsp. Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
You can add or remove the pineapple, or corn, if you like
and just add more of the things your family loves!
Combine above salad ingredients in a large bowl.
Stir dressing ingredients together and pour over salad.
Stir until combined.
Chill 2 hours.
Serves 6-8.
Here's the Recipe PDF:
and it will give you the opportunity to try
some of the freeze dried foods you have on hand.

I used this recipe for dinner last night, but changed it up a bit. Instead of the dressing I used the Magic Mix to make white sauce and put it on top of the pasta, veggies, etc and warmed it in the oven for a bit and it was a great hot meal! Thanks for the ideas Trish!
