Ham Salad (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Tree Nut-Free, Peanut-Free, and Nightshade-Free)

I try to make a sandwich spread each week.  One that I love is ham salad.

Finding a ham that is free from maltodextrin is hard to find.  There is one at Aldi that is Gluten-Free and Maltodextrin-Free (also free of dairy, soy and nuts).  I like to use it for this sandwich spread.

It is also hard to find mayonnaise that is free from paprika.  I usually make my own mayonnaise and hope to get a video up soon of that recipe.

I like to have this with thickly sliced cucumbers that I use to scoop up the ham salad.  In the above photo my lunch consisted of ham salad, chopped kale, cucumbers, and mustard greens from my garden.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ham
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 2 teaspoons garlic
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 dill pickle spear
  • salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Add ingredients to food processor and blend until desired texture.  I like mine to still be a little chunky.
  2. Transfer to airtight container to be stored in fridge for a few days.

Like most combined salads this is best made a day ahead of time.

As things become ripe in my garden I often add them to this salad – lovage, chives or chive blossoms, radishes, or other herbs.

Enjoy – Susan
