When you find yourself knee-deep in leftover holiday ham, keep calm and make ham salad. it’s great as a dip, spread, or sandwich filling, and with my fermented sweet pickle relish, it’s packed with probiotics!
This isn’t a deli sandwich spread made with questionable ingredients, this is the real deal.
For a softer ham salad—more like the type you might purchase at a deli counter—use a meat grinder to grind your ham instead of finely chopping.
Using the grinder attachment of your Kitchen Aid Mixer is perfect!
- Pulse the chopped ham in a food processor until you have very small pieces. Take care not to overprocess.
- Transfer the ham to a medium bowl and add the mayonnaise, relish, onion, and celery, folding to combine.
- Serve chilled, as a sandwich spread or a topper for crackers or cucumber slices. Enjoy!
- The spread will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
