This ham salad recipe is not a copycat recipe, but it is from a woman that I met, and I thought she had the most amazing ham salad, so I wanted to share this one with you. Her recipe is unusual because she starts with a package of ham of the lunch meat variety, she cooks the ham slices with brown sugar before making this delightful recipe.
