Holy cow, if anyone out there has high blood pressure, PLEASE leave out the salt!! It's not necessary as there's already plenty of it in the ham. Too much salt can surely ruin a perfectly good dish and without it, this salad is very tasty and worth making for lunch with your leftovers.
I found this recipe to be very easy to make. However, it is extremely salty. I would not recommend the use of additional salt. I wish that I had noticed the sodium content prior to making the recipe. I ruined a good ham. I would attempt to make this again, only no smoked ham and no extra salt.
AWESOME! At first, I thought it was just okay and decided to "doctor it up" in the morning...make this the night before, and let it set in the fridge overnite...Big Difference! I used half sweet pickles and half dill (couldn't decide!), and I also ground it up in the food processor. Our local deli's is very good, but this was so much better...thanks James!
I am not a cook....whoo...that is a understatement. I whipped this up from some left over ham and my husband went crazy over it. We did add some hard boiled eggs to this recipe and we were delighted at how wonderful everything blended together for a fantastic taste.
I made this ham salad for finger sandwiches for a special function. I also made egg salad and tuna salad. The ham salad sandwiches went the fastest. Everybody raved about the taste. I highly recommend this recipe.
I used miracle whip in place of the mayo and left out the celery since I didn't have any and it was still great. Oh, and I only put in a pinch of salt. I can't wait to try it with the celery.
This salad was easy and had a great taste!!! I used half mayo, half Miracle Whip, and used dill relish instead of sweet relish. I don't normally like ham salad, but this was good!!! I also left out the salt as suggested in another review.
I am not a huge ham fan and found this recipe ideal for after-the-Holidays leftover ham. I added some spicy mustard for a bit of added flavor. I also chopped the ham and veggies in the food processor for a nice small consistency.
