Thumbs up The best ever sandwichs

I just made some yesterday and today I stumble on the thread. Mom always made ham salad with the leftovers. She also made type-salad with chicken, turkey, tuna, egg, port, and beef as well. Growing up when times were hard you had to make the most of any food items you got, Mom seemed to make any meal go further.

Mom would also mix a little baloney with the ham to make it go further and no one ever knew it. Adding some good pickles or relish puts a great added touch on taste.

We have it in every deli in Ohio. Yummy. I don't make it from leftover ham anymore, but that was exactly how I made it...ground ham, mayo, pickle relish.

It's a staple in our household, I've tried to make it, but have never liked what I made. I put mustard in, maybe that's what made it yukky?
I usually buy it at our local grocery here - Publix. Honey Baked ham makes delicious ham salad, but Publix is more convenient.

I use leftover ham, some mayo and relish. I put the ham in the Magic Bullet first, give it a whirl, add the mayo and relish, mix it and it's done. It takes five minutes tops.

A friend said she'd heard of ham salad sandwiches but not ham salad.

A couple of national chains - Wal-Mart and Honeybaked Ham - sell it here but I just make my own now. It's basically ham, mayo and pickles with whatever additions you want. I heard that market in OKC is closing in a couple years - - gotta get back for my ham salad fix.
what I do recall: it was deviled ham it the can then have eggs so it did become ! then add mayo, relish to your taste. it was real good.

That deviled ham in the can is a little creepy to me. Its mystery meat What you describe sounds more to me like 'hash' then ham salad that I am used to.

We are talking about 2 different items. Ham Salad is the chopped ham with pickle relish and mayo. Delicous for little finger sandwich rolls along with some of egg salad and some tuna salad for a luncheon platter. An old fashion treat!

The canned deviled ham took me some getting used to (had a red devil on the label of the can). I had a friend whose thanksgiving family recipe included deviled eggs in which that "potted meat" was mixed with the egg yolks and some seasonings, and used to fill the eggs. I tried it out of politeness, and I liked it. Its not my tradition but it was good!
