Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Skinny Ham Salad
(73 calories | 2 2 2 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
Finely chopped cooked ham mixed with onion, mustard, mango chutney, light mayonnaise and non-fat Greek Yogurt combined to make a yummy skinny ham salad.
Ham salad is one of my favorite ways to use up the leftover bits from a baked ham.
It makes a great sandwich filling for rye bread or small rolls or a tasty topping for crackers and cucumber slices, which is the way I enjoyed it for lunch today.
Skinny on Skinny Ham Salad
The inspiration for this skinny ham salad recipe comes from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook , my go-to cookbook when I'm seeking old-fashioned comfort.
I lightened it up by using a combination of light mayonnaise and non-fat Greek yogurt in place of the full fat mayo called for, with good results.
According to my calculations each ¼-cup serving has 73 calories and:
