This is a fresh and delicious salad using some bright spring flavours, asparagus, peas and fresh dill. A lovely creamy dressing with tender ham and Cheddar cheese.


1/2 lb (225 g) Fusilli pasta
1 cup (250 mL) Mayonnaise
1/2 cup (125 mL) Dijon mustard
1 tbsp (15 mL) Apple cider vinegar
1 Small orange pepper, diced
1 cup (250 mL) Peas, blanched
1 cup (250 mL) Thinly sliced radishes
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Asparagus, blanched and cut into ½” (1 cm) pieces
1 cup (250 mL) Diced Cheddar cheese
2 cups (500 mL) Diced Maple Leaf® Original Natural Smoked Ham
1/4 cup (60 mL) Chopped fresh dill


BRING a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions, about 9 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Transfer to a large bowl.

MIX mayonnaise, mustard and cider vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside.

ADD all of the remaining ingredients to the pasta. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
