Facebook is a necessary evil in blogging. I admit right now I am ticked off at that social media outlet right now. Facebook hates food in my opinion.

Hawaiian Ham Salad

Facebook rant is over. I get cravings sometimes for no reason. I wanted ham salad. Part the reason I wanted ham salad was that I am starting to pack my lunch for work instead of buying it.


What is funny about me is I do not eat a plain ham sandwich. I am so picky when comes to meats. Like I can’t eat chicken on the bone.
Yet, if it is boneless I will eat it. You will notice I have no wings recipes. It is because of that reason.

Uses For Leftover Ham

Anyway, back to ham salad. I was at the store and there were these little boneless tavern hams on sale for $1.99 a lb. The average cost of these little hams was about $3.

    Well, pineapple and ham are good old classic on a pizza so why not in salad form. And I’ll bet it’s divine in a sandwich

    I love ham, and this ham salad looks delicious. I would probably skip the bread and put it on crackers for a yummy snack

      I have to confess, I did just eat on crackers and just out the bowl LOL. It is so yummy!

    Huh! I’d never heard of ham salad before! I was familiar with chicken salad and tuna salad, but this one is a new one for me. Thanks for sharing the recipe so I can try it!

      A few people I work with in Cleveland never heard Ham salad either. So I do wonder if it might be a PA thing. We had it all the time in Pittsburgh. 🙂 It is super yummy!

        I was raised in Cleveland, OH and yes that is where I got to love ham salad. Maybe those folks are transplants like I’m a transplant to Texas. LOL I’m so glad for this recipe so I can make my own.

    This sounds like a great twist on an old favorite.
    I would love to try it, but some confusion on a couple of ingredient amounts.
    What does 1 cup /2 mean??
    And what is 1 oz can crushed pineapple 8 can mean?

      I am so sorry about that! I switched up my recipe cards and when I imported the recipes onto the new cards it jumbled some the recipes ingredients. I thought I had corrected them all but this one must have slipped by me. I did correct it but it 1/2 cup and 1 8oz can of crushed pineapple

    I have made this twice. It is really good. Do you drain the crushed pineapple, it doesn’t say in the recipe. Thank you

      I have not, only because when I try to drain crushed pineapple, I don’t get much liquid out of it. Thank you!!!
