Ham Salad

Susan Cutler


I really like this Ham Salad for a sandwich spread or sometimes I put it with lettuce and other veggies into a tortilla round! I have also been known to put it on a cracker round - BY THE WAY the cheese makes it!!

I made sandwiches this summer for some friends, my grandaughter, Kristen and myself. We went on an outing here in Alaska for the day! The sandwiches were a hit. One friends' fiance' who is an attorney had some after she returned home and called me after he had some to ask if I would make him more ham salad, He LOVED it!! lol

pinch tips: How to Butterfly Meat





15 Min


3 c
ground ham, fully cooked (do not use ham with added water)
2 Tbsp
celery, finely chopped
2 tsp
onion, finely chopped
1 Tbsp
hard boiled egg, chopped
2 tsp
sweet pickle relish
1/4 c
cheddar cheese, shredded (optional) *i use it
3/4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

In a mixing bowl, combine ham, celery, and onion.

Place in refrigerator.
In another bowl, mix together mustard, egg, relish, cheese, and mayonnaise; add to ham mixture.
Mix well and refrigerate until ready to serve.

1. It is best to let ham mixture sit in refrigerator until it gets really cold, even over night.

2. I buy a large ham and cook it fresh, then grind up in a processor what I need and freeze the rest in cut up chunks storing it in either a vacuum sealed bags, 2 ziplocks (one inside the other) or in a tight sealable container. It's easier to freeze amounts you will use for different things. I also, if ham has a bone in it - freeze ham bone with a bit of meat on it separately and use for soups!
