  • 3 cups finely diced or ground ham about ¾ pound (see Notes section below)
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs chopped
  • ¼ cup finely diced celery
  • ¼ cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon finely diced or grated white onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


  • Add diced or ground ham, chopped eggs, celery, and bell pepper to a large mixing bowl.
  • Combine remaining ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stir to combine well. Pour over the ham mixture and toss to incorporate dressing throughout.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Stays fresh and delicious for several days.
  • Serve on slider rolls with mayo, bread and butter pickles, and lettuce. Also delicious on crackers, especially if using ground ham (see recipe note).


If you'd prefer a finer texture to the salad, you can grind your ham. Place pieces of ham in your food processor and pulse a few times, just until lightly ground.
