There’s plenty of flavor and crunch in this refreshing salad. I like to use both red and green apples, and sometimes I substitute celery for the water chestnuts. —Vickie Lowrey, Fallon, Nevada

Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained and halved
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium apple, chopped
  • Lettuce leaves
  • 1/3 cup chopped macadamia nuts, toasted
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted

Directions

  1. Drain pineapple, reserving 1 tablespoon juice. In a large bowl, combine the pineapple, rice, ham, water chestnuts and onion. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, salt and reserved pineapple juice. Pour over ham mixture and toss to coat. Stir in apple.
  3. Serve on lettuce-lined plates; sprinkle with macadamia nuts and coconut.
