I used to cook a ham and 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. This is good to serve for game day or anytime you have a group of people over and serve snacks. Men love this and it makes a lot. It will keep in the refrigerator for several days and goes well as a sandwich with soup for lunch, too. When I first started making this ham salad I would just make it after holidays when I had leftover ham. Now, I buy pieces of ham like Kentucky Legend at the grocery and make it all the time.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. This makes about a 1/2 gallon tupperware container full. I like having it on hand. Recipe can be cut in half. Enjoy! Note: You can finely chop the ham if you don’t have a food processor or a way to grind it up. Be sure and pin for later!
