Smoked Ham Salad on Gruyere Potato Coins

Top Review by GaylaJ

Delicious and different. The salad is very nice, but I think the stars here are the gruyere potato coins--they make fabulous bases, so different from the usual, expected crackers or bread. Except for scaling to half, I followed the recipe exactly and it was very much enjoyed--thanks for posting!
