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

How to Make Ham Salad

Step-by-Step

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

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

    Hint:
    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!
