Ham salad is good anytime!

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.

Ingredients for ham salad:

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.
