Spring is in the air and that means you can enjoy plenty of meals outside in the sunshine.  This simple ham and brie picnic sandwich works great as a packed lunch.  Leftover ham is piled high on a baguette with thick slices of brie, arugula and mustard.

Herb Ham Salad Sandwich
Recipe from A Farm Girl Dabbles

If you are a fan of classic chicken salad, you are going to love this herb ham salad sandwich.  Large slices of ham are broken down in the food processor and combined with onion, bell pepper, mayonnaise, mustard, chives, parsley and more.  The filling can be spooned onto any bread but the croissant is my favorite.

Rise and Shine Bagel Breakfast Sandwich

Ham is a food that can be eaten with any meal but is especially good for breakfast.  Your favorite breakfast sandwich just got better with the addition of a few slices of ham.

Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich
Recipe from The Happy Flammily

In my opinion, the grilled cheese sandwich is one of the simplest yet most rewarding dishes around.  This particular rendition pairs ham with caramelized onions, fresh parsley and chipotle gouda for a perfectly balanced bite.

Cherry Ham Sandwich
Recipe from The Art of Moseying

It is no secret that pork pairs well with fruit and this sandwich proves that yet again that sweet fruity undertones balance the salty notes in ham.  Tart cherry preserves are served with dill havarti cheese and ham on leftover sweet rolls.
