Winter Blossom's Often Requested Ham Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 149
I have been making this salad for years and recently traveled from NJ to Oklahoma to make a batch for one of my friends. I have also Overnighted this salad to a friend in Dallas who simply loves it. Of course, I pack it in dry ice. It's fast, simple and great for a cocktail party on party rye, on toast or a bagel for breakfast, on rye with lettuce, thinly sliced onions and dill (or sweet)pickles and mayo for lunch or with pea soup and sandwich for dinner. It's down right Yummy!!! And make no changes to the ingredients because the salad will not taste the same.

Chef John's Homemade Ricotta Cheese

Rating: 5 stars 23
If I came over to your place and you served me homemade ricotta cheese, I'd think you were pretty cool. And while that's a good reason to do this, there are even better reasons--like, it's super fun to do, ridiculously easy, and you'll end up with something far superior to what you buy in the store. Serve on toast with honey, cayenne, and sea salt or with tomatoes, basil, freshly ground black pepper, olive oil, and sea salt--or however you like.
