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...
