I love Hawaiian recipes. Most Hawaiian recipes use pork and pineapple incorporated into it. Hawaiian people love pork, plus pineapples grow in Hawaii, so is it no wonder why so many Hawaiian recipes have pork and pineapple in them.

Tavern Ham

I was at the store and there was a little boneless tavern ham on sale. I felt that tavern ham was perfect for ham salad recipes for sandwiches.  A tavern ham is perfect for grinding up for a ham salad recipe and a ham loaf.

    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!!!

    I made a bourbon pineapple glazed ham for Easter & served it with homemade pineapple chutney. I chopped up some of the leftover chutney in the food processor & substituted it for the crushed pineapple. It was delicious & helped me use up my chutney. Thanks for the inspiration!
