I know what I don't like about most ham salad spreads. So I set out to correct it. I am most happy with the results. Take a look and see if you might like it too. If you like this recipe see others at my website: mybestcookbook.wordpress.com
Place everything in a food processor with not quite all the mayo and pulse until it is pebbly size and encorporated. Add more mayo just to bind. Taste and adjust as you wish.
The point is to get away from the salty, heavy mayo and cloying sweetness. If you like more of this, then obviously add more sweet pickles and mayo. I stayed away from the dill pickles because of the salt.
