Deviled Ham Salad

Deviled Ham Salad is a recipe it seems every family prepared in the 1970’s and even through the 1980’s and well into the 1990’s. But as our foodie curiosity grew, some of our classic recipes fell by the wayside.

It’s not necessarily a bad thing either because I love the foodie revolution and the embracing of other foods and cultures from around the world. I mean, I have no idea how I ever lived before I had Easy Beef Pho, Chicken Vindaloo or Beef Empanadas.  But that’s not to say that I don’t still love the American classic dishes that I grew up with.

Deviled Ham Salad is a recipe it seems every family has a favorite recipe. It's great on marbled rye bread or as a spread for crackers and a great way to use leftover ham

This week my husband and I decided to try our hand at making Mom’s Deviled Ham Salad. This was always good on some rye bread with a little extra mustard but was a favorite of mine served at parties for finger sandwiches.

It’s also good on butter or club crackers. A classic charcuterie platter-type appetizer.

What we created was a pretty good replica of my Mom’s Deviled Ham Salad and my husband said it was better than any “potted ham” he’d ever tried, so this recipe is a keeper.
