Ham Salad Recipe

Who remembers that tasty ham salad from when you were a kid? Man, was it good. This is the recipe your mom used to make with all that leftover holiday ham! Simple to make, eat it between bread as a sandwich, in a cut tomato or lettuce boat, on crackers, or by itself. It is all so good!

Notes:

• You may use a regular food processor instead of a mini one if you like.
• If you are doubling or tripling the recipe, a regular food processor can mince all the ham at once. You would need to do several rounds in the mini to get enough minced ham to make a double or triple recipe. That is not a big deal, but some people prefer smaller steps.

Ham Salad Ingredients:

• 1 cup Ham, cooked and minced
• ¼ cup Mayonnaise
• 1 TBSP Sweet Relish
• Pepper to Taste
• Optional: 4 Slices Bread

Ham Salad Mise en Place:

Mini Food Processor
• Spatula
• Bowl
Measuring Cup

Ham Salad Ingredients:

• Mince enough cooked ham in a food processor (a mini-prep processor works great!) to make 1 cup of minced ham.
• In a bowl, combine mayonnaise and mined ham by hand until well mixed.
• Scoop 1 tablespoon of relish and go over to the sink. Press your (clean) finger on top of the relish in the tablespoon so the excess liquid flows over into the sink.
• Mix the relish into the ham mixture.
• Pepper to taste.
• That’s it, you are done! You can now use the ham for sandwiches, a meal or hors-d’oeuvres on crackers or in cherry tomatoes.
• Refrigerate leftovers.

  1. One of my favorite things about ham – the leftovers for ham salad! Seems like it’s an old-fashioned dish or either a Yankee dish (??) because I don’t know many since I’ve been in the south to make ham salad. They seem to stick to tuna and chicken. I actually like to use dill relish (or chopped pickles), tho use sweet at times, and add finely chopped onion and ALWAYS chopped hard-boiled eggs.
    I once made the mistake of making it with a honey-glazed ham (which I don’t really like anyway, too sweet). Honey glazed ham salad was not my favorite….
    I hope you and yours had a Happy Easter…now ON to summer!

    I bought this at the Islays store in Ohio, years ago. (spelling of store could be wrong). It was a treat to get when Mom would go shopping. Great memories of this ham salad.

    Like the recipe. My mom always made it with baloney instead of ham so you can’t call hers “ham” salad but we loved it a thousand times better than ham salad.

    looks good.
