Ham Salad is perfect for an appetizer with crackers but also makes a filling sandwich!
Either way, it’s delicious and great for holiday leftovers.
If you don’t have leftover ham you can use lunchmeat. I used 8 oz. of Boar’s Head ham.
Since I was using lunchmeat I used a knife to cut it into small pieces. If you’re using regular ham you can use a food processor to break it down.
How I lightened up Ham Salad:
There’s really only one thing I had to lighten up – the mayonnaise.
I love mayonnaise, but it’s so high in points.
To lighten it up I used a combination of reduced fat mayonnaise and fat free sour cream.
That small change saved 21 points!
You can also use fat-free Greek yogurt instead of fat-free sour cream. I prefer sour cream because the taste isn’t as strong as yogurt.
How to make Ham Salad:
The first thing I did was cut 8 ounces of ham into small pieces and added it to a medium bowl.
Next, I chopped a hard boiled egg and added it to the ham.
I also added one rib of celery and a tablespoon of sweet relish.
In a small bowl, I added the light mayonnaise, fat-free sour cream, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper, then mixed it together.
I didn’t add salt because the ham is high in sodium. You can taste the ham salad and add salt if necessary.
Pour the dressing into the ham bowl and combine.
If possible I like to refrigerate the ham salad for at least an hour before serving.
Ham Salad can be kept in the fridge 3-4 days. It’s great for meal prep if you want to make sandwiches for the week.
