Every time we make a spiral cut ham, I can’t wait for the leftovers to make ham salad sandwiches. Salty, creamy, crunchy and just a little sweet. All together in one delicious leftover ham salad sandwich.
There’s something about ham-on-the-bone that makes amazing ham salad. Far better than any deli ham. We end up getting a large ham about 2 or 3 times a year. And, as always, I use a pressure cooker to heat up a bone-in ham.
Once you cut off a good amount of leftover ham, and trim off any fat, you’ll give it a nice fine chop and combine with mayo, mustard, onions, celery and dried cranberries
That’s my secret ingredient to bring some sweetness and balance to the salty and savory. Toss in a fair amount of crunch from the celery and you have an irresistible leftover ham salad sandwich.
No matter how much I make, it rarely lasts more than a day.
