Ham Salad

Throughout this series I've really enjoyed reminiscing over old family meals we ate growing up. This sandwich spread is one I remember my grandma and mom making all the time.

I've changed the recipe a bit from the original, mainly because I don't think I could stomach bologna anymore ha! My grandma had a meat grinder and we would use that to chop up the meat. I figured my food processor would do a fine job so that's what I used. I bet even a blender could work if that's all you have.

These are great to enjoy for a no cook meal or to take along on a picnic. I see lots of stores selling their own versions of this sandwich spread, when it's so easy to make your own I just don't see the point in purchasing it. This way you at least know what ingredients are going in. That gives me piece of mind right there.

Ham Salad

1/2 lb good quality sliced ham
2 tbsp dill relish
1/2 cup mayonnaise

In a food processor, pulse ham until in little bits. Remove and dump into a small bowl. Mix in relish and mayonnaise until well combined.

Serve on buns with lettuce. Store remaining spread in the fridge. Keeps for about one week.
