Step 1

Dice the ham into small 1/2" cubes.

Add all of the remaining ingredients except for the relish to a food processor and pulse until chunky.

You want it to be smooth enough to spread on crackers, but not so smooth that it becomes a paste. Check every few pulses and watch closely to get the desired consistency.

Transfer the spread to a mixing bowl and stir in relish. Serve with crackers and Swiss cheese.
