Hubby loves Ham and I had a recipe challenge that called for REAL Creativity. It was a stretch to get in the required ingredients, but this sandwich fit the bill and is Hubby approved too! This is my weekly challenge sandwich with Frozen Fruit and Dill Pickles. EEEEKKKKK.

This recipe has a surprising taste and texture... and by that, I mean it's delicious! We were taken aback by how very much we loved the candied dill slices! Yum, yum yum. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Mango-nnaise Ham Salad on Sourdough Rolls

Step-by-Step

  1. Start by preparing your Candied Dill Pickle slices according to the directions in the ingredients list. I chose slices because they don't take as long to candy as chunks or spears. They can be prepared as little as 2 hours before making the salad or you can make them days ahead of time for a sweeter flavor. They will draw their own juice as they sit and there is no need to refrigerate them, just shake them occasionally.
  2. Chop the ham and place in a medium bowl. Refrigerate til needed.
  3. Place the mango chunks in a small bowl lined with three or four layers of paper towels. Defrost and heat the mango chunks in the microwave oven on high for 45-60 seconds. Lay another three or four layers of towels over the softened chunks and press out as much water as possible into the towels. Remove all the towels leaving the mango in the bowl and mash the mango well with a fork.
  4. To the mashed mango, add the mayonnaise, honey mustard, celery, grated shallot, seasonings and chopped pickles and mix well. Add the mango-nnaise to the bowl with the chopped ham and mix well.
  5. Split and toast the sourdough rolls. Place the lettuce on the bottom half of the roll and top with half the ham salad. Put the top on the sandwich and serve with a few of the candied dill slices on the side.
