Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Skinny Ham Salad
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 1/4-cup serving has 73 calories, *2 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *2 SmartPoints, *2 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.
Skinny Ham Salad Spread Recipe Variations:
spicier: mix the 1 cup chopped ham with 1 tablespoon light mayo, 2 tablespoons non-fat Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish, and 1 tablespoon mustard instead of the ingredients specified above
sweet & tangy: substitute 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish for the 1 tablespoon chutney and omit the mustard
