Triple score

Creamy Ham and Vegetable Macaroni Salad:


  • 2 boxes of Mac and Cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 slices of leftover ham, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste (optional)
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Cook Macaroni:
    • Cook the macaroni according to the instructions on the boxes. Drain and let it cool to room temperature.
  2. Prepare Cheese Mix:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cheese packets from both boxes with mayonnaise and milk. Stir until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency.
  3. Vegetable and Ham Mix:
    • Add the frozen peas, carrots, and chopped ham to the bowl. Mix well, ensuring that the ingredients are evenly coated with the creamy cheese mixture.
  4. Seasoning (Optional):
    • Taste the mixture and season with salt and pepper if desired. Remember that the ham may add some saltiness, so adjust accordingly.
  5. Chill:
    • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill the macaroni salad in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours. This allows the flavors to meld and the salad to become nicely chilled.
  6. Serve:
    • Once chilled, give the macaroni salad a final stir. You can garnish it with fresh parsley for a burst of color and added freshness.
  7. Enjoy:
    • Serve your Triple Score Mac and Cheese Salad as a side dish or a light dinner. It’s a delightful blend of creamy textures, savory ham, and colorful vegetables.

Note: Feel free to customize the recipe by adding other ingredients like diced bell peppers, red onion, or shredded cheese for extra flavor. This recipe is not only cheap, easy, and a great way to use leftover ham, but it’s also versatile and can be adjusted to suit your taste preferences. Enjoy your dinner! 😄
