4 (1/4 inch thick) slices
hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 cups
dill pickle relish
ground black pepper to taste
I did not have dill pickle relish but I did have garlic dills, I used four full garlic dill pickles in this recipe. I also added a couple good shakes of Frank's Hot Sauce. I made no other changes. For us, this was a little too mayonnaise-y though the combination of ingredients is fantastic. I will make this again but I will cut back the mayonnaise. I loved that this recipe called for light mayonnaise.
This is the best ham salad I have ever eaten. I say that because I don't particularly care for ham salad yet this was good. I used hamburger dills only because I didn't have any dill pickle relish. I really liked the mayo/Dijon dressing.
This is great for Easter leftovers! My modifications: Used more egg than ham, chopped up a dill pickle instead of using relish, used horseradish mustard, omitted the onion, added tarragon and celery seed. Yum!
No need to buy slices of ham. I had the Deli shave 1 lb. of ham. Then I chopped it up. Not a fan of djon so I used yellow mustard. Mixed all ingredients except mayo. Green onions were my choice using both white & green, Then I added mayo slowly until I reached a nice mix to my liking.This goes really well on a good rye bread. I'm thinking of trying horseradish next time instead of mustard.
