This is the best ham salad I've ever had. I left out the pimentos, and used bread & butter pickles, as that was what I had on hand, but this will be a permanent addition to our menu. The dry mustard makes all the difference.
Good stuff, Inez! DH and I put it in sandwiches and also find it great for putting on top of crackers. I had to use spicey gherkins since I didn't have sweet, but DH and I loved it anyway. A terrific recipe for using up all that leftover Christmas ham.
I'd never made ham salad before. I think this is a very good basic recipe for ham salad. You can certainly add whatever else you like in it...olives, celery for crunch. I needed more mayo for my liking, as well as more gherkins. I really like this recipe. The flavor was great. I used a food processor as well. It went together very easily.
One word from my husband, "Excellent!" Left the pimentos out because I didn't have any. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
This was a great recipe. It turned out great even though I didn't have any gherkins or pimientos. I will add those the next time. I did however add onion powder and I ate mine on a sandwich with a little dash of hotsauce and cranberry sauce spread on my bread. MOUTHWATERING!! 8^ )
This was such a treat and a great way to served my leftover ham.I served it with crackers with my Cauliflower and Carrot soup.Great combination.Thanks for posting. Sage/Rita
Thank you for this easy and great recipe. I took Mike's advice and chopped it in the food processor, I had never thought of that before--great idea! I used relish instead of gherkins and pimentos. I like it a bit sweeter so I used mayo and Miracle Whip. Now I have something to do with leftover ham! Thanks again!
Thanks, I have always liked ham salad,but never new what was in it. This is one of my favorite's on wheat bread or over salad. Great Snack Food!
My husband says the best ham salad he has ever tasted. The flavors blended sooooo well. Great recipe!
Really easy and great tasting!
