Ham and Cabbage Salad

The temperature soared to a humid 94 degrees on Saturday, and in case you're wondering... Um, no, that's not normal for May 21st in Philly. Keeping cool and hydrated was priority number one. So, whether you want a nice cold salad and are out of lettuce, or are looking for more recipes that use cabbage, this Ham and Cabbage Salad made a nice easy meal:@) Honestly folks, it really doesn't even require a recipe, make it family size, or just a bowl for lunch (like I did here). Simply add a squirt of lemon and mix to your desired consistency with mayonnaise. The ham adds a salty component, cucumber cold and wet, corn sweetness, and the cabbage is filling. It's a nice combination.
This is a good ~use it up~ recipe if you happen to have some ham in the freezer.
I used cabbage I already had in the fridge,
a nice young head with some green leaves would be prettiest if possible.

And yes, please do replant those scallions!
or right in the garden:
It's just good thrifty fun:@)
