Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’ll post my St. Patrick’s Day recipes tomorrow so I can take pictures ~ we are having Guinness and Beef Pot Pie, Irish Soda bread and Mint Cheesecake
I made three different kinds for the bridal shower ~ ham salad, dill chicken salad, and cucumber chicken salad. All three worked well. Yes, I should have cut the crusts off the bread but I was pressed for time.
I have already posted the dill chicken salad recipe here. I cut up the chicken a little smaller but otherwise made it the same way.
The ham salad is not really a recipe but a way to use up leftover baked ham. My Mom made it for years and I have been known just to bake a ham so that we can have the leftovers for ham salad sandwiches. Here is what I do: I slice some ham into small pieces and throw it in my mini chopper (you could use a food processor or a meat grinder) with a small piece of onion and grind it up, put it in a bowl, add a spoonful of pickle relish and some mayo and mix it up. That’s all there is to it. Just add the mayo a little at a time until you get the consistency you want. Easy peasy!
