CommonGround volunteer Leslie Boswell shares her recipe for Old Fashioned Ham Salad with Pure Nebraska viewers.


Old Fashioned Ham Salad


  • 2 cups ham fat trimmed off and diced
  • 1/2 cup miracle whip
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 stalk celery chopped fine
  • 1 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish
  • Additional options
  • 2 tsp. dried onion flakes
  • 1 tsp. stone ground mustard


  • Dice the ham into small 1/2" cubes. Add all of the remaining ingredients except for the relish to a food processor and pulse until chunky. (You want it to be smooth enough to spread, but not so smooth that it becomes a paste. Check every few pulses and watch closely to get the desired consistency).
  • Transfer the spread to a mixing bowl and stir in relish. Serve on white or rye bread or with crackers and Swiss cheese.
