Ham Salad

Leftover ham?  Make this wonderful simple ham salad with diced ham, hard-boiled eggs, sweet pickle relish, mayo, onion, celery, bell pepper, and mustard.  Serve it on a croissant, bagel, bread, or by itself on a bed of lettuce.

P. S.  Makes a great breakfast!

HAM SALAD (Makes enough for about 4-6 sandwiches)

2 cups finely diced ham
3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish (I used dill relish and highly recommend this choice!)
1/4 cup mayo
2 Tbsp minced onion
2 Tbsp minced celery
2 Tbsp minced red bell pepper
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp freshly-squeezed lemon juice
pinch of cayenne (optional)
S&P to taste

Mix everything but the salt, pepper, and cayenne in a large bowl.  Taste and add cayenne, S&P to taste.  Serve chilled.

NOTE:  Serve straight, or mixed in with macaroni, or in a sandwich in a hamburger bun, a Kaiser roll, regular bread, in a pita, or as a wrap.  Good with lemonade on a hot day.
