I used to cook a ham and then half of it would go to waste. Then I started making ham salad. I love this recipe. It is great on crackers or bread. A great way to use up leftover ham.
6 cups ham, coarsely ground
4 eggs, hard boiled and chopped
1 cup celery, finely chopped
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
1 cup mayonnaise
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Make sandwiches or serve on lettuce with crackers. This makes a large bowl of salad and keeps well in the refrigerator for several days. I like having it on hand. Recipe can be cut in half. Enjoy!
