Can You Freeze Ham Salad?
If you are looking to make a yummy ham salad in advance, you can absolutely freeze the dish. You'll want to freeze ham salad shortly after making it though to preserve freshness. The longer you let it sit in the fridge, the less freeze-able it becomes. If your ham salad has been in the fridge for 3 days or more, we do not reccomend you freeze it. When freezing ham salad, be sure to add several layers of freezer bags to keep it fresh.
Ham salad can be frozen for up to 2 months if stored properly.
