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.

To make the Amish Ham Salad you will need:

  • cooked ham
  • eggs
  • milk
  • all-purpose flour
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • mustard
  • sugar or honey
  • white vinegar
  • saucepan
  • whisk
  • mixing bowls

This salad starts with an easy simmered dressing with egg, milk, vinegar, and a couple other simple ingredients.

Then some diced cooked 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. (See my tutorial for making hard boiled eggs in an Instant Pot or for doing it the traditional way in a sauce pan.)

Note: I no longer eat pork, however I am leaving recipes like this one up for those who enjoy it. Many pork recipes can be easily converted to turkey or chicken recipes, with little or even no other changes. Recipes with bacon or sausage can use alternatives like beef or turkey bacon. Many of those recipes are being updated with the changes. Article: Why I Quit Eating Pork

  1. My neighbor had a dressing similar to this that I always loved as a child. She gave me the recipe but it was lost in one of my transitions. She made potato salad with it but the ham salad sounds amazing!

  2. This salad sounds so good, I will try to make it this week.
    I made chicken stock with the chicken carcasse left from last Sunday’s Roast following your recipe and a few days later used it to make soup, it was so much nicer than the usual soup I make and my husband and boys had seconds.
    It was sweet seeing your daughter in law moving away for the first time, It brought back good memories for me, we moved so many times with the navy.
    Thank you for the recipes.
