It constantly surprises me the foods my kids fall in love with, like ham salad sandwiches.
This Cuban ham salad was one of those, oh geez I need dinner on the table in 10 minutes what can I throw together real quick kind of things. They absolutely loved it and now ask for it regularly! My Cuban ham salad has the flavors of a Cuban sandwich, ham, mayo, spicy brown deli mustard, dill pickles, and swiss cheese. It’s a simple combo, but it goes together so great.
We like to put this ham salad on homemade Hawaiian rolls, but it would also work great as a wrap. If you’ve got some extra ham to use up and are looking for a quick and easy recipe, you should try this Cuban ham salad. It’s perfect for picnics, potlucks and just nights when you need food on the table in a flash.
