Leftover Ham Salad Sandwiches

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

Yes, 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.
