Mortadella and Ham Salad Tapas

Mortadella and Ham Salad Tapas

When my friends, Mary and Ray, invited us over for a tapas and wine tasting party I went looking through my tapas cookbook to see what would be quick, easy and tasty to bring. I found this dish in a book I bought in the mid-’80s called “Tapas, The Little Dishes of Spain,” by Penelope Casas.

Blending these ingredients together may sound a little strange but it created a savory, sweet dish that even my finicky 13-year-old loved.
