Ham Chopped Salad with Green Apple Vinaigrette & Ham and Veggie Breakfast Skillet

 Happy Healthy Food Friday! I cannot believe that we are so close to embarking on a new year. I love looking back on this series and seeing some seriously awesome recipes, graphics, and so on- tons that you guys continue to use and make staples in your weekly meal plans! It’s been a lot of fun.

When American Express first teamed up with Whole Foods to bring you the #2Ways2Percent program- giving you an additional 2% cash back when using your Blue Cash Card, I told you how excited I was. I mean, cooking a feast for friends and family really adds up, so even more cash back is always a bonus! Now that this is the third month, I am even more excited about the program and the recipes that have been going along with it! We started off with Raspberries: two ways, then moved to Butternut Squash, and now we’re here in December with HAM. I wanted to give you two super delicious, and super healthy recipes to use with your leftover holiday ham.

Let’s start with a post holiday salad that is bursting with flavors. Ham, egg, avocado, apples, tomatoes- all over chopped lettuce. Pair that with my new favorite dressing, and you have yourself a winning salad that will make those holiday leftovers into a guilt-free lunch!
