I did not have dill pickle relish but I did have garlic dills I used four full garlic dill pickles in this recipe. I also added a couple good shakes of Frank's Hot Sauce. I made no other changes. For us this was a little too mayonnaise-y though the combination of ingredients is fantastic. I will make this again but I will cut back the mayonnaise. I loved that this recipe called for light mayonnaise. Read More

This is the best ham salad I have ever eaten. I say that because I don't particularly care for ham salad yet this was good. I used hamburger dills only because I didn't have any dill pickle relish. I really liked the mayo/Dijon dressing. Read More

No need to buy slices of ham. I had the Deli shave 1 lb. of ham. Then I chopped it up. Not a fan of djon so I used yellow mustard. Mixed all ingredients except mayo. Green onions were my choice using both white & green, Then I added mayo slowly until I reached a nice mix to my liking.This goes really well on a good rye bread. I'm thinking of trying horseradish next time instead of mustard. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious! It's a great way of using extra Easter ham and the extra hardboiled eggs. Serve it between 2 pieces of toasted bread and add a layer of lettuce and you've got yourself a treat. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I wanted the ham salad mixture as a filling for a raw stuffed tomato salad rather than as a sandwich filling, so I cut back on the mayonnaise. I used some chunks of ham from the freezer which I first sliced, then chopped in the food processor. I also changed the mayo to regular rather than light. It proved to be a delightful salad and I'd definitely make it again. Read More

I adjusted this a bit by doubling the ham and adding 2 eggs , I don’t like the crunch so I added scallions instead of the onion. All in all it made some tasty sandwiches that were even better the second day . Read More
