Cuban Ham Salad

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.

It constantly surprises me the foods my kids fall in love with, like ham salad sandwiches.A slider bun filled with cuban ham salad on a plate with a dill pickle next to it.

This 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!

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 recipe out.  It’s perfect for picnics, potlucks and just nights when you need food on the table in a flash.A plate with a Cuban ham salad sandwich.

I recommend trying this ham salad on these homemade Hawaiian rolls.  They are super soft and fluffy inside, but best of all this Hawaiian roll recipe is just 4 ingredients and super easy to make.

Here is a real Cuban Ham salad recipe. 1 pound ham 1 pound cream cheese 2 cans deviled ham 1 jar of pimento A dash or two of garlic

I put everything in a food processor until smooth. Then put on small rolls. Keeps well in fridge for a few days. You can half the recipe. My daughter preference is to make buy hand. She likes more chunks in hers. You see this at any Cuban get together.

Even people who love to cook sometimes dread rushing around right after work to make dinner. This is great for nights like that!

Oh man, how good do these look!? I always have leftover ham that I'm not sure what to do with, so I'm totally giving this a try next time. Pinned!
