Winter Blossom's Often Requested Ham Salad

Winter Blossom's Often Requested Ham Salad

Blonddee

"I have been making this salad for years and recently traveled from NJ to Oklahoma to make a batch for one of my friends. I have also Overnighted this salad to a friend in Dallas who simply loves it. Of course, I pack it in dry ice. It's fast, simple and great for a cocktail party on party rye, on toast or a bagel for breakfast, on rye with lettuce, thinly sliced onions and dill (or sweet)pickles and mayo for lunch or with pea soup and sandwich for dinner. It's down right Yummy!!! And make no changes to the ingredients because the salad will not taste the same."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Process the ham in a food processor until finely chopped but not pasty, about 6 or 7 pulses. You may need to do this in batches. Place the finely chopped ham in a large bowl and continue processing the remaining ham.
  2. Add the mayonnaise, onions, relish, and mustard to the processed ham. Mix well and, if the mixture is too dry, add more mayonnaise. Refrigerate until serving. The dried onions absorb some of the moisture from the mayonnaise and relish so you may need to add more mayonnaise before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • Do not use boiled or processed ham. I add some of the delicious crusty skin when using leftover baked ham. You can also ask in the deli department for baked ham ends. I only use Hellman's(R) mayonnaise, but you can substitute 1/2 regular and 1/2 light. I prefer dill pickle relish, but I have made it with sweet relish and it still received rave reviews.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Wow. I had never tried ham salad before. It always sounded like something my very southern grandmother used to make (mashed vienna sausage sandwiches anyone?) But I made a glazed ham the othe...

I agree with a previous review that, until recently, I wasn't a big fan of ham salad. But I made this two weeks ago, and it's excellent. As the submitter said, it's a good idea to add a little...

Ham salad has always been a favorite of mine as a sandwich or cracker spread. But I've never added brown mustard and that makes it especially tasty.

This is a great recipe for ham salad. I have made it twice now, both times with leftover Costco Kirkland brand applewood smoked ham. The first time I didn't have enough dill pickle relish so I ...

I must confess that I do not often measure when cooking, but since I had leftover ham and some doubts about this recipe, I did measure. Very good, but a little bland for my New Orleans taste bud...

This is my go-to recipe whenever I have ham to use up! I love it on sandwiches or just with crackers. Yum-o!
