Ham Salad Recipes
In his elevated version of potato salad, star chef Jose Andres combines fingerling potatoes, smoky ham and buttery shallots in a whipped deviled egg dressing. Minced cornichons, spicy horseradish and crunchy English cucumber add amazing flavor and texture, and a garnish of pickled okra brings a unique (but delicious) bite. This salad is a perfect side dish for cookouts, and is a great way to add sophistication to backyard summertime cooking. Pair this salad with a berry-rich sparkling rosé cava for a highbrow take on a barbecue classic.
