Ham Salad

This is one of the recipes that you decide how much you want to put in.  One of my favorite things about cooking like this is – you get to add, stir, and taste, repeat!

Ham Salad

Ham Salad

Ingredients

  • Ham
  • Celery, chopped into small pieces
  • Granulated onion powder
  • Granulated garlic powder
  • Mustard, grainy or dijon
  • Capers, drained
  • Pimento stuffed olives, chopped into small pieces
  • Kosher pickles, chopped into small pieces
  • Smoked paprika
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Little freshly grated nutmeg
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • Mayonnaise

Instructions

  1. Grind the ham in a meat grinder or food processor.
  2. Place the ham in a large bowl, and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
  3. You could leave the cloves and nutmeg out, but I wouldn't. It's such a great, warm background flavor. It makes it more of a comfort food, and will remind you of baked ham.
  4. Now, let your imagination take over - serve with crackers or slices of baguette, spread on bread for a sandwich (and maybe, grill it), make croquettes and fry them...........
  5. Add crumbled bacon, if you want a little pork on pork action.
