To me this is a ham salad - I don't know why they called it "deviled ham" maybe it's because the ham gets chopped up and mixed up with other ingredients. Maybe, someone who really loves plain ham called it this because he didn't like the idea of ruining a good piece of meat.
Whatever the reason was - here is the basic simple salad recipe for deviled ham.

Deviled ham was first started in the United States by the Underwood Company after experimenting with ham and spice recipes in the late 1860s. They were granted a trademark on their little red devil logo by 1870 and started turning out the deviled ham in small cans. Many people liked the recipe, and soon were experimenting with their own recipes.
