Simply Southern Ham Salad

Ingredients
  • 1 – 16 oz package Diced Cooked Ham
  • 1 small Yellow Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Jalapeno Pepper, veined and seeded, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs Dill Pickle Cubes
  • 1/4 c Mayonnaise, preferably Duke’s Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Black Pepper to taste
Add the cubed ham to a small pot, covered with water and boil  for about 30 minutes. The cubed ham is pre-cooked, boiling helps aid in texture.
Drain the ham and allow to cool a few minutes, then add to a food processor. Pulse the ham 6-8 times.
While the ham was cooling, chop a small yellow onion and a jalapeno pepper. Remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeno unless you prefer the extra heat.
Add the chopped onion and pepper to  a mixing bowl with the dill pickle cubes. Add the ham, mayonnaise, and seasonings and mix until combined. Serve as a sandwich spread or as a dip with crackers.
