How to Make Ham It Up Spread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place 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.
  • 2The 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.
