Dutch Salad

A very simple salad spiced up with a little ham. Still, there were no leftovers!

Dutch Salad


  • 1 head of lettuce
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • a dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 3/4 cup cooked ham, diced
  • 3 tbsp. wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. water


    Wash and pat dry lettuce. Tear leaves into large pieces and put in a salad bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

    Melt butter in a small saucepan. Fry the ham in the butter until lightly browned. Remove from heat and add vinegar and water. Pour over the lettuce, toss lightly and serve.
