Ham Salad - Put those leftovers to good use!

Ham Salad 3

Christmas has passed ..... All eyes are on the New Year it seems! Maybe you're wondering what to do with all of that leftover Christmas ham? One of my favorite recipes with leftover ham is Ham Salad - it's so easy and I love that it can be used on crackers or in sandwiches! Put those leftovers to good use!

Some folks like to add boiled and chopped eggs to their ham salad - totally not my thing, personally ..... but if you like the idea, 2 or 3 boiled and chopped eggs can be added to the recipe below.

Ham Salad
Printable recipe
Yield: 10-12 servings

3 cups fully cooked ham, finely chopped (I use my food processor)
1 tbsp. sweet pickle relish
1 tbsp. finely chopped onion
1 tbsp. finely chopped celery
1 cup mayo (or more to taste)
1 tbsp. yellow mustard
Crackers or bread, for serving

Combine all ingredients (except crackers or bread) in a large bowl. Mix well. Refrigerate until serving time. To serve, spread mixture on crackers or use on bread to make into sandwiches!

  5. I saw this on the Appetizer Linky party and had to stop in and take a look. I'm getting ready to make my mom's ham salad for a blog post, so was anxious to see your recipe. This is pretty close to what she makes and I think it's delicious. And yes, she did put hard boiled eggs in hers. Happy New Year, and nice to meet your through the party.
