For I don’t know how many years, I’ve been rediscovering one of my all time favorite salads among the post Easter refrigerator surplus. I think the original recipe was maybe from Every Day Foods, but I’m not real sure.
If you’ve got a few leftover boiled eggs and some ham, I can’t recommend it enough. If you don’t have any eggs and ham… well go out and get some because you need to make this salad!
For two meal-sized salads you’ll need:
3 TBSP Olive oil
About half an onion, chopped
1 TBSP grainy mustard (I use Grey Poupon because it makes my children laugh)
1 TBSP white whine vinegar
Salt and pepper
About a cup and a half of diced ham
3-4 boiled eggs
3-4 radishes sliced very thin
Heat the oil in a skillet and cook down the onions. Remove from heat and stir in the mustard, vinegar and sprinkle well with salt and pepper. Add in the ham and stir well. Put a generous helping of spinach on your plate and dollop on the ham/onion/dressing mixture. Add egg and radish and toss well.
I seriously could eat this every day, and I just might.
What are your favorite salads? I haven’t had the Napa Cabbage Salad in ages and I really loved that one. I seem to recall another old favorite that had pears and peppered pecans in it… I wonder if I can find that recipe? If I do I’ll share it.
I’d love to hear about the salads gracing your spring tables!
