Simple Salad

When it comes to the salad, keep it super simple.

You can do this by buying the lettuce variety packs or just throwing in a big bowl some lettuce, small cherry tomatoes, and cut up cucumbers or peppers. You may want to leave off the onions in case there are people who don't like them or allergic.

Have two salad dressings available for your guests like Ranch and Italian or French.

 

Christmas Ham Leftovers

You can easily save the entire ham in a gusseted vacuum seal bag or separate into individual size portions using the pint size or quart size vacuum seal bags.
