Grandma's Ham Salad

Ham salad on wheat crackers.
Last Sunday, my Grandma made a ham to accommodate the large crew who assembles at her house after church. When it is time for me to pack up and head home with the boys, I am tired and frazzled from all the commotion! We have the best time and somehow, on my way out the door like the wind, I was handed a big zip-lock of extra ham. Score!

I decided to make some post-nap ham salad for the kids and I to dip our wheat crackers in. It is such an easy recipe, and if you have a food processor, putting ham salad together is even easier. I use the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor which is sold on Amazon right now in 17 different colors! I am kind of obsessed with the turquoise one:

Ham Salad Recipe
Leftover Cooked Ham
Sweet Onion
Ground Black Pepper

Chop ham in food processor until ham is coarsely ground. My leftover ham yielded about 2-3 cups.

Place ham into a serving container. Chop pickle and onion separately in food processor and combine with ham.

Add about 1 Tbs. mayo (Greek yogurt would be a great substitute as well!) per cup of ham or however creamy you like it. I like to add a little black pepper because I love pepper!

The kids and I scooped up our ham salad with wheat crackers, but it is also delicious in a sandwich. Spread ham salad on warm toast with a slice of cheddar cheese and food doesn't get much better than that.

    1. It was! I had it on a wheat baguette for supper with some potato soup. I may or may not have had two bowls of soup ;)
