Hand Salad Sandwich

Hand Salad Sandwich

Community Classics .
Edited on Oct 03, 2007

Here is a cute idea for a Halloween party, from chilren to adult! You can use any "salad" recipe for the sandwich, but I chose to use a ham salad....


1-1/2 cups diced fully cooked ham
1/2 cup unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained and patted dry
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 tablespoon diced pimientos, drained
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon ranch salad dressing
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 tablespoon minced chives
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Sandwich bread loaf
1 small bag of sliced almonds.
Red food coloring....could use green!


trim the crust from 2 slices of bread. Spread the Ham [Chicken, Tuna, pimento, & even egg-salad spread can also be used] salad between the 2 slices. Use a 2" Round Cookie cutter to form the palm. Cut the remaining into 4 finger-shapes, and 1 thumb shape. Place 1 almond slice on the end of each finger & thumb, use a small paint brush and food coloring to color the fingernail....Repeat with remaining bread/salad spread. Arrange into hand shapes on platter.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
