Virginia Baked / Ham Salad

Cassie *


This was my quick lunch. Could easily feed two. I like ham salad, and especially with good ham. I buy blocks of Virginia Baked Ham and use it for this, and chop it up in my chef salads.

You could easily double the recipe for more servings. Normally I add a hard boiled egg, didn't have any prepared to use today. This took a total of 5 minutes to whip together...

How to Make Virginia Baked / Ham Salad


  1. Place ham, pickle, onion and egg if using into food processor. Pulse till all is chopped fairly fine.
  2. Scoop into bowl, add cheese, mayo, mustard , egg, pepper and stir until well combined.

    Eat with greens on a plate, or use in a sandwich. It's delicious either way.

    I have this typically for a low carb lunch. Enjoy!
  3. I have also spread this on buns, and broiled in the oven, the cheese melts and makes it a delicious ham salad melt sandwich..
