Ham Salad

Don't know what to do with all that leftover ham from Easter? Try this fast and easy ham salad with tangy mustard and crunchy celery. Enjoy it in a sandwich or just on its own. Dovetailing Tip: Use the leftover ham from day 1 in tonight's recipe.

Prep time:
Yield: about 4 cups
Serving size: 4
Calories per serving: 589

1/2 cup mayonnaise, plus more if needed
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
1 pound leftover baked ham, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 1/4 cups drained bread-and-butter pickle chips and 1 tablespoon pickle juice, plus more if needed
2 inner ribs celery, finely chopped, plus 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped leaves from the inner ribs
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped

Whisk the mayonnaise and mustard together in a large bowl. Pulse the ham and pickles in a food processor until finely chopped but not pureed. Add the ham mixture, pickle juice, celery, onions and celery leaves to the mayonnaise mixture, and stir. Taste; if the salad seems dry (it should be spreadable), add more mayonnaise and/or pickling liquid. Serve as is or on sandwiches.
