"I like to make this hearty main-dish salad in summer when it's too hot to turn on the oven," shares Lori Thompson of New London, Texas. "My husband and children really like the unexpected flavor of the dill pickle."

  • 1 cup diced fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 3 hard-boiled large eggs, chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
