What do you put in your Ham Salad?

I have a hankering for ham salad. I don't have any leftover ham, but I bought a package of diced ham. So now I am set to go! I used to just make it with ham, mayo, sweet relish and maybe some finely diced celery. Last time I made it I went a little nuts and tossed in some cheese, which I chopped in my mini chopper so it was like small balls of cheese - not grated, some finely chopped black olives, no celery, and a bit of dill relish. It was very good. My mom made it with green peppers, but I don't really care for those in my ham salad, but then again, her ham salad was actually made from bologna, so . . .

Do you have any other things that you toss in to make it "more than just ham salad?" I don't care if it is eaten on bread, lettuce, crackers, or just with a fork!

Thanks, Dani
