  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.
