Hearty Ham Salad

We love a good ham. During the holidays, leftover ham can be used in SO MANY WAY. Here’s an easy, but hearty, recipe for ham salad that can either be served in a sandwich or as a cracker spread. It has a lot of texture and a little kick for depth of character.

  • 2 cups ham(copped up small or shredded in a food processor)
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 cup onion(purple is our favorite)
  • 1 tsp mustard(Bavarian style is sturdy but Dijon is good too)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • 1/4 cup hot or hot-sweet pickled relish
  • 3/4 cup salad dressing(only use 1/2 if you like it less creamy)


  • Dice the egg and then mix everything together. Poof! You’re in business.


Note: We like things spicier in this house so feel free to adjust the seasoning to your tastes. We’re just opening your eyes to the possibilities.

To be honest, there's a ton of stuff - not all of it rosy - about me on the internet so there's nothing new to say here. I like food and sharing my recipes.
