  • 2 cups cubed ham
  • 1 cup cubed ring bologna (Optional) – this was put in if we had extra money
  • 1 cup sweet gherkins
  • 1 1/3 cup whipped salad dressing (not mayo) *See note
  • 1 Tbl ketchup


  1. Place the cubed ham (and bologna) in a food processor and pulse just until you get smaller pieces.
  2. Add in the gherkins and pulse until the pieces are about the size of rice. You don’t want it pureed; you want small pieces.
  3. Scrape into a bowl.
  4. Add in the whipped salad dressing (I used Miracle Whip) and ketchup and mix to combine. If adding in the ring bologna increase the dressing to 1 1/3 cup plus 2 Tbl.
  5. Store in an air tight container in the fridge.
