I have been making this salad for years and recently traveled from NJ to Oklahoma to make a batch for one of my friends. I have also Overnighted this salad to a friend in Dallas who simply loves it. Of course, I pack it in dry ice. It's fast, simple and great for a cocktail party on party rye, on toast or a bagel for breakfast, on rye with lettuce, thinly sliced onions and dill (or sweet)pickles and mayo for lunch or with pea soup and sandwich for dinner. It's down right Yummy!!! And make no changes to the ingredients because the salad will not taste the same.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds cooked ham, chopped

  • Âľ cup mayonnaise, or as needed

  • â…“ cup dried minced onion

  • â…“ cup dill pickle relish

  • ÂĽ cup brown mustard

Directions

  1. Process the ham in a food processor until finely chopped but not pasty, about 6 or 7 pulses. You may need to do this in batches. Place the finely chopped ham in a large bowl and continue processing the remaining ham.

  2. Add the mayonnaise, onions, relish, and mustard to the processed ham. Mix well and, if the mixture is too dry, add more mayonnaise. Refrigerate until serving. The dried onions absorb some of the moisture from the mayonnaise and relish so you may need to add more mayonnaise before serving.

Cook's Note

Do not use boiled or processed ham. I add some of the delicious crusty skin when using leftover baked ham. You can also ask in the deli department for baked ham ends. I only use Hellman's(R) mayonnaise, but you can substitute 1/2 regular and 1/2 light. I prefer dill pickle relish, but I have made it with sweet relish and it still received rave reviews.
