Ham Salad Tips
What kind of ham should I use in this ham salad recipe?
This ham salad recipe is perfect for the day after you make a dish like honey-glazed ham—a ham recipe with relatively neutral ingredients that mix well with spicy brown mustard and Worcestershire sauce. If you want to play it safe, cut away the edges (and with it, most of the glaze) of your leftover ham to avoid any potential less-than-desirable flavor combinations.
Can I mince the ham instead of dicing it for this ham salad recipe?
Yes! If you prefer to serve this ham salad recipe as a spread instead of a salad you can scoop into sandwiches, feel free to mince the ham instead of dicing it. You could even put the ham into a food processor to make the job easier!
How else can I serve Ham Salad?
If you choose to mince the ham, try serving the recipe as a spread with buttery crackers. Otherwise, sandwich it between two halves of a croissant, roll, biscuit or even just two thick slices of bread. If you liked this ham salad recipe, make sure you check out more leftover ham recipes!
