Real Ham Salad with "New" Nutritional Facts

It's that time of year when everyone makes those New Year's Resolutions to lose weight, get fit, being healthy, etc. In lieu of those who are watching what they eat, including myself, I will start to put Nutritional Facts on my recipes.

To try it out, I will post a quick Real Ham Salad recipe! I'm sure everyone has had their fill of ham, but if you're a bargain shopper and find a ham marked down after the holidays, make Ham Salad! And freeze the rest of course. Ham and Bean soup... Ham and Scalloped Potatoes... There are just so many things you can do with it!

Real Ham Salad
Prep. Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: None
Total Time: 10 Minutes
Servings: 8 (1/2 Cup Each)


  • 16 oz. Lean Ham
  • 3/4 Cup Sweet Relish
  • 3/4 Cup Salad Dressing (Such as Miracle Whip)
  1. Pulse ham in food processor to make small grain size pieces.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix with Sweet Relish and Salad Dressing until combined.
  3. Serve on bread of choice.

You could lighten this recipe up even more by using Lite or Fat Free Salad Dressing. Keep in mind though that usually Lite and Fat Free items have more salt and/or sugar in them.

If you need a recipe's Nutritional Facts, let me know and I will try and get them for you.


  1. you killed it with the miracle whip only Hellmann's will do lol

    1. You can certainly use Hellmann's. Miracle whip is what I had on hand. It's tasty both ways!
