  1. Combine pickles, onion, and celery in a food processor; pulse to a medium-fine consistency. Add ham; pulse into pieces about 1/4 inch in diameter.
  2. Stir ham mixture, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and Cajun seasoning together in a bowl.
  3. Divide ham salad mixture over 4 slices of rye bread; lay 2 lettuce leaves over each. Cover with remaining bread slices.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute Cajun or brown mustard for the Dijon if desired.
  • Substitute whole-grain bread or buns for the rye bread if desired.
  • Freezing the ham salad has been an option for me in the past, because it makes such a lovely luncheon dish on the fly, but leave out the mayonnaise before freezing. Defrost and drain salad well before mixing in the mayonnaise.
  • Pinwheel sandwiches work well with this ham filling. I used rye wraps when I made them and added thinly sliced red onions and smoked Gouda cheese.
