Nana's Ham Salad

When we bake one of our Country Hams we always have some left overs. Sometimes we have the Ham Hock for a nice pot of beans and sometimes we have enough for our Ham Salad. Ham Salad is great served on a lettuce leaf, on a nice cracker for an appetizer or our favorite is a Ham Sandwich on Croissant. This is our favorite family recipe for Ham Salad and comes straight from the recipe card that I recently sent my Granddaughter.

  4. I have an aunt that has to get ham salad from a particular butcher shop every time she comes to town, but I can't say I've ever made ham salad myself. I'll have to give it a try!
