Ham Salad Sliders

Everyone needs a good ham salad recipe in their life. A way to turn leftover ham or even canned ham into the best sandwich filling EVER. 
Our recipe has been a family favorite forever and is super simple to whip up. Got ten minutes? Then you have time to make this ridiculously easy and delicious yet soon to be favorite recipe. 
We love these on our homemade Focaccia Slider Buns (Recipe HERE) but this filling is delicious on pretty much any bread or buns or even with veggies. 

Ham Salad Spread

2 cups ham, diced small (or 2 small cans)
1/4 cup onion, diced small
2 green onions, diced small
1 Tbsp prepared mustard
4 Tbsp mayo
salt & pepper
1 pickle, diced small

To make sliders
pickle slices

Place ham, onion, green onion, mustard, mayo, salt & pepper, and pickle in a bowl and stir to combine.
Divide mixture in half and place half in a blender or food processor. 

Process until smooth and creamy, scraping sides of blender as necessary. 
Add back to the bowl with the reserved ingredients. 

Stir together. Add in a little more mayo, if needed, to make sure it is nice and creamy. 

Spread a little more mustard and mayo onto the bread or buns you are using. Then top with ham spread. 

Place pickle slice in the sandwich OR on top of the bun for serving. 

Don't assemble the sandwiches until ready to serve. The pickle slice will make your bread soggy if it sits too long. The ham spread can be made up ahead of time and stored in the fridge until ready to use.

Ham salad is a great way to use up leftover ham after the holidays. Planning snacks for game day or kids after school snacks? Tired of egg salad or tuna salad? 
Problem solved.
