ham salad | 8:44 pm | 7 April 2008
I just Googled “ham salad” + “popularity trends.” Nuthin’ much there, so, if you’d like to do a research study or foodie-journalism expo… you could start there if you want.

Looks like it’s been on deck for years. Probably better timing with the rest of technology to wait until now.

Open-faced omlette garnished with onions, peppers, tomatoes and ham
I thought this seemed too simple to be really great — it’s just onions, peppers, tomatoes and a little garlic sautéed with eggs and ham — but served with a crisp white wine and a baguette, it was a gorgeous little supper.
