I hope this method works for me! I'm out of eggs now and will try this process as soon as Michelle brings me those farm fresh eggs.

My Christmas ham leftovers is/are in the freezer. But your recipe, Loren, sounds good.

If I follow up on my resolution, the ham will stay in the freezer for awhile.

Loren, thanks for the left-over ham recipe. I have a big chunk left from New Year's Eve and your salad looks like a great way to use it up. 

Grinning Cat, I also have some leftover salmon and your recipe is just what I need. 

Thanks to both of you.

Randy, I am with you on eating healthier during 2020. We eat very healthily now, but I want to reduce our red meat and certain carbs.

I seldom follow any recipe unless its essential to do so.

Both good recipes. My salads are mostly of the 'What is this? Get into the bowl!' type a good way to clear the fridge.

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 2, 2020 at 4:24pm

That does sound good!

A much vaguer ("a little of this, a bit of that") recipe outline for salmon salad which I enjoy:

Canned or pouched salmon

Lots of dried dill weed (put on how much you think is enough, then double it)


A little lemon juice (or lemon powder)

A little olive oil

Maybe some dried onion

Whatever other seasonings you feel like (mustard? relish? pepper? lemon-pepper or other blends?)

Mix well, adjusting quantities to taste.

Sounds tasty.

Not that it's any great big deal or anything, but I just threw together what I think is some pretty darn good ham salad, made from our Christmas ham, using this recipe.  You might give it a shot if you're of a mind.

I usually don't make "new years' resolutions", but I'm going out on a limb and resolving to eat better. I've drifted into some bad habits--mainly eating too many sweets and processed foods, i.e., salty snacky munchies, i.e., pretzels and chips. Not good.

I also need to cut back on eating meat and things like pizza. Less cheese and other dairy products, too. My doctor says I must lower my cholesterol (it's 250). He says I can do it without taking drugs which I refuse to do. Just eat better! My problem is: I don't have a weight issue. I've always been thin-- my excuse for poor eating habits.

It's more than weight. It's my heart, liver, kidneys, etc., that are being damaged by my junk food addiction. So, on this 2nd day of 2020, I hereby resolve to eat more greens, beans, fruit, garlic, etc. At least I should be able to continue drinking coffee and wine!

Anybody on board with me?
