Paula Deen's Best Ham Salad Recipe

April 1, 2024

Ham salad is one of my favorites! And it is the perfect recipe for leftover ham and hard boiled eggs from Easter. This is one recipe that I look forward to all year long!

I always follow Paula Deen's ham salad recipe because let's face it...she is the queen of comfort food and this ham salad truly is the BEST!! And it totally reminds me of the ham salad that my grandma used to make.

Rather than finely mincing things like her recipe calls for, I keep it fast and easy and chop it all up in the food processor. It takes minutes to make this ham salad and it makes the most delicious sandwich! Or an appetizer, with crackers! I love this!

Paula Deen's Best Ham Salad Recipe


2 cups of ham, diced

1 cup of celery, diced

1/4 cup of sweet onion, diced

1 tsp Dijon mustard

2 hard boiled eggs, sliced

1/4 cup relish, drained

1/2 cup mayonnaise

Fresh cracked pepper

  1. Add the ham to your food processor and pulse until the ham is chopped up.

  2. Add the rest of your ingredients to the food processor and turn it on until the ham salad is mixed together finely.

  3. Chill the ham salad until you are ready to serve.

  4. Serve on bread as a sandwich or on crackers as an appetizer.

Trust me...if you have never had ham salad before, you have to try this easy and delicious recipe! The ultimate, classic comfort food! And it's one of my favorite parts of Easter leftovers!
