Ham Salad Sandwich

I love Ham Salad. It's one of those sandwich salads, that I like smooth. No chunks!

I make this when I have leftover ham but often I'll buy some ham just to make Ham Salad.

You'll need:
Salt & Pepper

Put the ham into the food processor and pulse until it's ground.
If you don't have a food processor, you can just mince it really fine.

Add enough mayo & mustard to hold it together and salt & pepper.
That kinda looks like an egg... but it's mustard on top of mayo.

If you like it wetter add more... dryer add less... I like it just held together and mustardy. So I use more mustard.
You can use whatever kind of mustard you want. I like yellow for Ham Salad.

That's it.

Lunch time!

You could add onions or pickles or lettuce & tomato, whatever you like!

I like mine pretty basic.

When i was pregnant with my first I has crazy craving for ham salad with pancakes. I couldn't get enough. Thanks for the reminder!

Deviled ham! My hubby used to eat it all the time when we got married-I must have burned him out on it since he never requests it anymore. I might have to make some and just force the goodness on him!

This is another thing I've never eaten for some reason. I need to get off my butt and make some, it looks wicked good.

Ham salad sounds so much better than a plain old ham sandwich. Great idea!

Priscilla said...

Wow, these look so good! I'd love one of those!

Girl, you're on a roll! I just finished writing to you that I've never had chicken fried steak. Well I never had ham salad either. It looks so delicious and different! I hope we have a ham on Easter so I can make this with the leftover ham instead of pea soup this time.

This is a great alternative to a plain deli ham sandwich!

Donna... lots of people seem to be afraid of ham salad... but I love it!

Thanks girli!

Cathy... hmmm... pancakes... I might try that!

tamilyn, when I first moved in with Jon I made him ham & cheese sandwiches to take to work... I kept asking if he wanted anything different... then about 2 years later... he finally asked for something else and mentioned that he didn't really like cold ham & cheese. I asked why he waited sooooo long to tell me... and he said that he was just so happy to have someone making him lunch he didn't care!

Bob... it's great for leftover ham!

Debbie... I think you're right!

Thanks Priscilla!

I hope you like it Michele!

I agree TN!
