Simply Southern Ham Salad

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.
 
Ingredients
  • 1 – 16 oz package Diced Cooked Ham or chopped leftover holiday 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

Deviled Ham Salad

 
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.

Easy ham salad recipe. Use this delicious spread on crackers as an appetizer or on a sandwich.

Ingredients

  • 1 - 16 oz package Diced Cooked Ham or 2 cups of leftover chopped baked 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

Instructions

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.

If using leftover holiday baked ham (no glaze) just chop or add to the food processor, there is no need to boil it.

Next, drain the ham and allow it to cool a few minutes, then add to a food processor. Pulse the ham 6-8 times.

Next, dice a small yellow onion and a jalapeno pepper. Remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeno unless you prefer the extra heat.

Finally, add the chopped onion and jalapeno pepper to a mixing bowl with the dill pickle cubes. 

Then, add the ham, mayonnaise, and seasonings and mix until combined.

Serve as a sandwich spread or as a dip with crackers.
