There’s something to be said about old-fashioned recipes like this Amish Ham Salad. And there’s a reason they have been around so long. They are delicious in their classic simplicity.
This salad starts with a simple, simmered dressing with egg, milk, vinegar and such.
Then some cooked, diced ham. You can get some from the deli or this is a great use of leftover holiday ham!
A nice bunch of hard-cooked eggs finishes this salad off.
Enjoy the Amish Ham Salad on a bun or wrapped in lettuce leaves.
I’ve included paleo substitutions in the recipe. This would be wonderful served inside lettuce wraps!
