Description

Piquant Ham Salad

This is a piquant and flavorful salad suitable for canapes and finger-sandwiches.

If you want to have it in larger servings, say on a sandwich for lunch, then you might consider cutting back on the capers, pickles, and dry mustard, or esle have it with a full-flavored bread like a pumpernickel or a Russian black bread. 

This is a good combination with the Potato-Caraway Bread.

Ingredients

1cMayonnaise
1tdry mustard
2TCapers (chopped)
4TDill Pickle (chopped fine)
4TCelery (chopped fine)
1⁄2eaOnion (minced)
1eaApple (chopped fine)
16ozHam (chopped)

Instructions

Mix the mustard into the mayonnaise. Combine all remaining ingredients except the ham to make a dressing. Reserve a little of the onion and the celery. Grind the ham with the reserved celery and onion in the food grinder. Mix the ground ham mixture with the dressing. Chill until ready to use.

Notes

I like to put it on rye toasts with thin slices of Maine Mustard Pickle or Ruuska's Sour Pickles as a canape, and serve them with chilled vodka!
