One of the best things about having a ham is the leftovers. In honor of the leftovers, I decided to make ham salad, using Paula Deen’s recipe as a starting point. It’s both easy to make and delicious as a spread on crackers, bread, toast, etc.!
I used the following ingredients for this delicious ham salad: Leftover ham, celery, onion, Dijon mustard, hard-boiled eggs, sweet pickle relish and mayonnaise.
Making the Ham Salad
I started by chopping the ham in a food processor. This took 6 or 7 seconds.
I served this delicious Ham Salad on crackers. However, I could have also spread it toast, bread, or whatever struck my fancy. Yum!
