  • 1/2 pound ham (cut into thin strips)
  • 3 eggs (cooked and chopped)
  • 1 cucumber (medium, cut into thin strips)
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil mayonnaise
  • 1 cup cheese (shredded, I used Cheddar)
  • salt (to taste)

Total time:
1 hour, 10 minutes

1. To cook chicken, place it in a pot and cover with water. Bring the pot to a boil, remove scum, cover and set to a gentle boil. Cook for about 40 minutes. (or you can bake chicken instead). Tear the chicken into thin strips.
2. To cook eggs, place them in a pot, fill the pot with cold water to cover the eggs. Bring the water to boil, over high heat. Reduce the heat and boil the eggs for 10 minutes to get hard boiled eggs. Chill the eggs by placing them under cold running water or in a bowl of ice water. Chop them.
