Macaroni Salad with Crescent Chicken Ham


For 4 Serving(s)

1/4 medium red onion, minced
2 tsp salt, plus more for salting water
225 g elbow macaroni
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp mustard
freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup sour cream
170 g Crescent Chicken Ham, cut into 1/3 inch cubes
3/4 cups frozen baby peas, thawed
2 ribs celery with leaves, diced
2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped


  1. To mellow the minced onion, soak it in cold water while you make the salad.
  2. Bring a large pot of cold water to a boil over high heat and salt it generously. Add the macaroni and boil, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain the macaroni in a colander, put in a serving bowl, and toss with the milk. Allow the macaroni to cool slightly while you make the dressing.
  3. For the dressing: Whisk the vinegar, mustard, the 2 teaspoons salt, and black pepper to taste in a large bowl. Gradually whisk in the olive oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream to make a smooth, slightly thick dressing. Whisk in the sour cream.
  4. Drain the onions, pat dry, and add to the macaroni along with the Crescent® Chicken Ham, peas, celery, and dill. Add the dressing and fold to coat the pasta evenly. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
