Danish Ham Salad

This is one the easiest lunch salads to make, and a very tasty one. If you like to get a lighter version, use half mayonnaise and half sour cream or yoghurt.

Serves 4.


  • 10 slices ham, diced
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ¼ onion, grated
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • chives, for sprinkling


Mix ham, mayonnaise and onion in a bowl, season with salt and pepper. Serve the ham salad on a slice of Danish rye bread as an open-faced sandwich. Sprinkle some chopped chives. I love tomatoes with this salad, it give the sandwich a nice balance.
