Easy To Make Ham Salad
So the hammy saga continues. We’ve had spiral sliced ham in, on, and around everything we’ve eaten these past few days, and there is still so darn much ham I feel like it will come out my ears soon. Today, I used about a pound of it to make something that was pleasant change from sliced ham…ham salad. I made this in the food processor with a chunk of ham from the end where the spiral slicing machine didn’t slice. I guess because of the knobby part of the bone it won’t slice down that far but that left me with a good solid pound of it to use for this spreadable ham salad
I cut it up into smaller chunks and put it into the processor with about 1/2 cup mayonnaise, a pickle spear, a few Spanish style olives, a few slices of pickled jalapeno pepper, a pinch of pepper and garlic powder, and a splash or two of the pickle juice to help it move around while processing. In a pretty glass dish, I garnished it with paprika and fresh parsley and let everyone serve themselves.
I was amazed at how fast it disappeared. Since it didn’t look like sliced ham any more, I guess it was more appealing to make a sandwich of it or snack on some atop savory crackers. Either way, it tasted pretty good…for yet another thing made with ham.
