Simply Southern Ham Salad

Please Share Y'all!

In this post I am sharing how to make a delicious Simply Southern Ham Salad.
 
Ham salad is a wonderful spread for sandwiches or crackers. It is easy to make and a favorite for many. A simple ham salad can be made with leftover holiday ham or convenient store bought packaged ham for recipes.
 
Classic ham salad is made with a creamy mayonnaise dressing but the other ingredients are fairly optional and can be changed according to taste.
 
Ingredients
  • One pound package of Diced Cooked Ham or chopped leftover holiday ham
  • Yellow Onion, finely chopped
  • Jalapeno Pepper, veined and seeded, finely chopped
  • Dill Pickle Cubes
  • Mayonnaise, preferably Duke’s Mayonnaise
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper to taste

Deviled Ham Salad

 
Begin by adding 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.
 
Next, add the chopped onion and pepper to  a mixing bowl with the dill pickle cubes. For the next step, add the ham, mayonnaise, and seasonings and mix until combined. Serve as a sandwich spread or as a dip with crackers.
