We all know that ham and pineapple are an amazing flavor combination. With this Roasted Pineapple & Ham Quinoa Recipe, I decided to lighten things up. Wholesome quinoa is tossed with leftover ham, pineapple, green onions and a homemade Light Honey Dijon. It almost sounds too simple to be good, but the combination of the salty and smokey ham paired with the sweet roasted pineapple is so refreshing and delicious.
The beauty of this particular salad is that not only does it use leftover ham in the recipe, it uses the leftover roasted pineapple you cooked with your ham on the holiday! If you are one of those people who don’t bake your ham with pineapple, well then I just don’t understand you. To each their own I guess! BUT, that doesn’t mean you need to miss out on this Roasted Pineapple & Ham Quinoa Salad. Simply toss your pineapple with a drizzle of olive oil and pop it in the oven. Bake it for 10-15 minutes until it is perfectly sweet and golden.
