Cajun Ham Salad Sandwiches
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.Advertisement
Stir ham mixture, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and Cajun seasoning together in a bowl.
Divide ham salad mixture over 4 slices of rye bread; lay 2 lettuce leaves over each. Cover with remaining bread slices.
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.
