Ham Salad Recipe

4.5 stars from 2 ratings of Ham Salad

Ham is known from ancient times, and is used all over the world. Though ham is used in a variety of dishes, including sandwiches, rolls and fillings, ham salads are one of the favorites, because they don't require much time and actual "cooking", and are very tasty.

Ham goes well with eggs, tomatoes, pickles, cucumbers, peas, corn, mushrooms, cheese, kidney beans and mayonnaise or sour cream as dressing.

There are lots of different variants of ham salad recipe, and today I'd like to share seven of them. Try all seven and see which you like the most.
