Easy Paleo Ham Salad

I love to make Niman Ranch no-nitrite ham for dinner, but we always have leftovers.  This kind of ham (which I find at Whole Foods) only comes in small 1-to-2 pound packages, and for a family of five (including a very hungry teenage boy), one package isn't enough and two are too many.  Hence, my constant need to find uses for leftover ham.

This ham salad makes a great weekend lunch, served over bitter greens like arugula.  I used my old-fashioned wooden bowl and double-bladed, crescent-shaped hand chopper to mince all my ingredients, but you could use a food processor to speed things up.  Just don't process too much or you'll end up with paste.

Easy Paleo Ham Salad

About 3 slices leftover ham
About 3 medium dill pickles (adjust to taste and size of pickle)
1 bunch green onion
1/2 cup vegan mayo
1 Tbsp horseradish mustard
Pepper to taste

Chop ham, pickles and onion into a fine dice.  Mix mayo and mustard in a small bowl, then add to ham mixture.  Add pepper to taste.  All of these ingredients can be adjusted to your own taste and the amount of leftovers you have.  Go crazy!
