HAM AND EGG SALAD SANDWICHES

2 large eggs, boiled, peeled, chopped
3/4 lb lean (previously cooked) ham, chopped
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
2 celery ribs, sliced down the middle then sliced thin
2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup mayonnaise
12 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread
6 lettuce leaves

In a large bowl combine the eggs, ham, relish, celery, and parsley.  Gently toss in the lemon juice and mayonnaise until blended.

To make 6 sandwiches, lay out 6 slices of the bread.  Place a lettuce leaf atop each slice.  Spread about a third of a cup of the ham and egg mixture over the lettuce and top with one of the remaining bread slices.  Cut sandwiches diagonally and place on serving plate.

Note: If you hold the sandwiches together with picks, as I have shown here, be sure picks are removed before eating.  One can choke to death form getting a pick in their throat!
