Creamy salads are all about texture for me. I swear the taste is different depending how it is done up. My ham salad is a far jump away from ham salad. I should rename it.
I slow bake a bone in hickory smoked ham. ( that alone should make you want to eat it. Ok I admit I LOVE HAM! Not pigs. Ham. ) Hard boiled eggs chopped in big pieces. Celery, mayo, vinegar, lots of black pepper, pimentos. The best of all is a spoon full of my homemade zucchini relish. I understand that many of you will not have this in your pantry I am sad to say that you will have to use store bought relish instead.
