Special Features of the Ham Salad Sandwich Recipe

There are several special features of the ham salad sandwich, such as the delicious mixture possible for ham salad sandwiches. Leftover ham is a wonderful treat and after the conventional split pea soup with the bone and a few shreds of ham and the delicious ham and cheese omelet, it is definitely time for lunch and delicious sandwiches. The ham salad and pineapple rings sandwich not only helps use up the extra ham from large family and friend events, it uses up the remaining pineapple rings.

Ham sandwiches go better with many different kinds of foods, like cheese, sweet relish, mustard, celery, and eggs. Whether you want to use wheat rolls, sourdough bread or hamburger buns, all breads, even rye and caraway seed, are excellent accompaniments to ham salad sandwiches. Toss in more crunchy items like sunflower seeds, radishes, raisins, or olives and find out how easy it is to make the old blah recipe simply delicious. One family favorite might be Ranch dressing in place of ordinary salad dressing.

For a great additional dish, mix up some coleslaw to serve with the sandwich and set out the pitted olives, as well. If this is going to be dinner and you want to have a dessert, think of serving coconut cream or lemon meringue pie. A tall glass of iced water is always welcome with a filling meal like this, as is coffee or tea. One of the best features of ham salad sandwiches is that they are delicious. In case there is ham left over, it is wonderful in macaroni and cheese, once more turning an ordinary dish into something spectacular.
