Smørrebrød Ham Salad with Tomato and Cress
This is a simple everyday sandwich. If you have a couple of slices of cooked, smoked ham in the refrigerator and you are tried of eating ham and cheese sandwiches, this is a good sandwich to make a quick lunch. It is a very popular salad for open-face sandwiches and can be bought in all the supermarkets and at butchers in Denmark. The problem is, they always run the left-over ham through a food processor, making it very fine. They also use a lot of raw onions and sometimes it can be to much. Making it yourself is very easy and tastes better.
