I was looking through my fridge and realized that I had some fresh cherries that I needed to use up. What to do, what to do? I decided to pair it with ham that I also needed to use up. I had ham steaks, you can use sliced deli ham as well. Just don't cut it up, layer it on. You could also use dried cherries or frozen for this sandwich. I like the peppery arugula against the sweet cherries.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine cherries, mustard, green onion, and mayonnaise; season with a pinch of salt and a grind or two of pepper.
  2. If using diced ham steak, stir it into the sandwich spread to coat.
  3. If using sliced deli ham, do nothing.
  4. To assemble: Place mixture on a slice of bread, top with arugula and close bread (ham steak).
  5. For sliced deli ham: Spread mixture on two slices of bread, layer in ham, and a handful of arugula; close sandwich.
