Old fashioned ham salad is one of those recipes that might not be familiar to younger generations... but we think it's worth bringing back! This delicious deli salad is a little bit salty, a little bit creamy, and a lot delicious. It's the perfect thing to bring to a picnic or potluck. Just open a bag of your favorite chips, and you've got a snack that everyone will be talking about.

We like this recipe because it is a little more filling than a lot of traditional dips. When you enjoy a serving of old fashioned ham salad, you're really getting a small meal. It's perfect for keeping you full during an afternoon barbecue or other family event. Enjoy!

Wow! I have not had ham salad in years. My mother used to make it all the time. I can't wait to make it now. I like the addition of the pickle relish. It will add a nice touch. Now I have to make the ham. Thank you!

What a great retro salad and a really good way to use ham even if you only have a little left. A much loved elderly aunt used to make something similar when I was a child so eating it again brought back a ton of memories. It is really quick and easy to put together and with a salad of fresh crunchy greens made a lovely light lunch.

My grandma used to make something very similar to this! Delicious and reminds me of summer picnics

I love ham salad. I have loved it since I was little. I never knew that you could easily make it at home! I have always bought it from the store. When I found this recipe, I had to try this. I loved this even more than the store bought ham salad! I thought it was interesting that this used both Miracle Whip and Mayo. I did use dijon mustard instead of the stone ground mustard. I also divided it and used dill pickle relish in some and sweet in the rest. I actually liked them both, and will probably do the same next I make this, which will be soon!

I always have left over ham. I only cook it at Christmas and have the ham left over then so it is a bit late to do this now but I am going to keep this recipe on hand for next time. I may make a ham for some special occasion or even create an occasion to cook it and invite the family over. Christmas in June! To me Christmas is synonymous with hams. I do love it though and would love to make this ham salad to eat with crackers.

I used to get an old fashioned salad like this one at my neighborhood deli years ago. We moved away, I never really saw it anymore. Whenever it was on sale for a good price I would buy a pound of it and make sandwiches with it, since they called it sandwich spread. This would be a great spread to put out on a brunch buffet or bring to a potluck.
