When you have leftover ham and are tired of just having more sliced ham, making a deviled ham salad is a great way to use it up. Using a food processor, it takes less than five minutes to make.

The amount of carbohydrate in this recipe is mainly due to the amount in the ham. Since it's difficult in some places to find ham that is entirely sugar-free, I used ham that has about 4 grams of sugar per pound for my calculations.

Also, the amount of mayonnaise, mustard, and relish are going to be according to your taste. We like a lot of relish in our ham salad, so adjust down if you're not a big pickle lover. I think some is important because it cuts through the richness of the other ingredients.



1. Cut the ham up into cubes of about an inch or so. Put about half in the food processor with an S-blade and pulse until the ham is shredded, then add the rest of the ham pieces and repeat until it's all shredded up

2. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until combined.

Serving Suggestions: Roll up in lettuce leaves, spread on cucumber slices, stuff into celery, or use any low-carb raw vegetable to use in a similar way.

Nutritional Information: Each of 6 servings (about a third to half cup each) has 1 gram effective carbohydrate plus half a gram of fiber (1.5 grams total carbohydrate), 15 grams protein, and 226 calories.
