Danish Ham with the Danish Italian Salad

The Danish Ham with the Danish Italian Salad is a very nice sandwich to have during the summer time! Really enjoy having for lunch cold ham with a cool topping on the rye bread during the hot summer months. Hope you enjoy the sandwich as much as I do. 

Danish Italian Salad (Italiensk Salat)
First step is to make the italiensk salat.  The good news is that it is super easy to make.  Check out our recent posting on how to make the delicious topping!  Italian Salad Recipe

Next step is to make the sandwich!


  • 1 piece of rye bread  
  • European style butter  
  • 1 table spoon of Danish Italian Salad (Italiensk Salat) 
  • Danish ham (not smoked)
  • alfalfa sprouts or cress

When you are ready to sit down to have smørrebrød, the first thing to do is butter a pice of dark Danish rye bread.  Then, place two or three slices of ham. Top off the ham with a nice spoonful of Danish Italian Salad. If you like alfalfa sprouts or cress then sprinkle it on top of the Italian Salad.  It is that simple to make! 

We usually set the table with a Royal Copenhagen plate, a fork, a knife and a glass for the beer.
