Beaumont Inn’s Country Ham Salad

Chopped aged country ham also makes for a wonderful topping at the salad bar so you will find it on our Friday Luncheon Buffet an on our Sunday Brunch Buffet. But, my (Chuck) favorite use of our chopped country ham is making country ham salad/spread.

6 cups chopped aged country ham
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup chopped purple onion
1.5 cups chopped sweet pickle
2 chopped hard boiled eggs
2 tablespoons of whole grain mustard
Hellman’s Mayonnaise to your liking.

Of course, you can vary the amounts of the ingredients to satisfy your own taste buds or do like I do, simply add until it tastes right! Anyway, this is great on crackers, finger sandwiches with a thin slice of homegrown tomato, toasted open faced sandwiches with tomato and a melted slice of your favorite cheese (Swiss is yum!), or as an appetizer – toasted crustini, ham spread, thin slice of homegrown tomato topped with shredded parmesan cheese run under the broiler!
