Old-Fashioned Ham Salad

Old-Fashioned Ham Salad

Here is another delicious way to use up leftover ham. I used to make pineapple and ham sandwiches before, but this is my other favorite way to use leftover ham: for a wholesome salad. Enjoy it with some crackers and slices of cheese (preferably Swiss).

Yield 2¾ cups | Prep. time 20 minutes | Cooking time 0 minutes


¼ cup mayonnaise

2 teaspoons dried onion flakes

2 cups ham, fat trimmed off and diced into

½-inch cubes ½ cup Miracle Whip mayonnaise

1 teaspoon stone-ground mustard

1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish or dill pickle relish

Sliced Swiss cheese

Butter crackers, cut into squares


Add all the ingredients except the relish to a blender or food processor. Blend to make a thick paste (do not over-blend or the mixture will be too thin).

Add the paste to a bowl and mix in the relish. Serve
