  • 2-3 cups diced ham
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 stalk celery, finely diced
  • 1/3 cup chow-chow or pickle relish
  • 1/4 cup finely diced sweet onion
  • salt and pepper


  • Place pieces of ham into food processor. 
  • Pulse to processor a few times until the ham is small and crumbly. Do not over pulse.
  • Pour ham in large bowl and mix in celery and onion. Drain chow-chow of any excess liquid and add into the bowl.
  • Add in mayonnaise and stir until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve. 


  • Make sure not to over chop the ham. If you put pulse it too much in the food processor it will become mushy.
  • Dice the onion and celery very small. This helps to keep everything about the same size. 
  • Drain the Chow Chow. Make sure to drain off excess liquid from the chow chow. Too much liquid will make the ham salad runny.
