Have you had your fill of ham from the holidays? We sure have! There were plenty of leftovers though (and you can only reheat it so many times) so I was struck with the idea of making some ham salad. I whipped up this ham salad with my sister in mind. I know, that sounds strange...but she was my inspiration because she loves the stuff. I like it, but not nearly as much as she does so I'll be giving her the rest of this batch. I tried to make it similar to the store-bought variety she normally buys but I think it turned out even better! I'm pretty sure she'll like it.
2 c finely diced, cooked ham
1 sm stalk celery, finely diced (about 1/4 c)
1/2 red pepper, finely diced
1 TB onion, finely diced
1/3 c mayo
2 TB relish
salt and pepper to taste
1. Mix everything together. (Process the vegetables and ham for a few seconds in a food processor if you can't get them into small enough pieces by cutting.)
2. Chill for about a half hour before serving.
