This delicious easy Ham Salad is made with finely chopped ham, sweet onions, celery, pickles, dill weed, mayo and a little bit of mustard. This recipe is perfect for using up leftovers from holiday hams. It is best with a piece of good quality ham that has been cured and preferably smoked. A smoked ham has less moisture in it and that is key to a good ham salad.
