Ham Salad Sandwiches With a Mango-Ginger Twist

While Katie was pressing a sandwich with smoked ham and cherry mustard, I was busy placing my own honey-glazed Easter leftovers between slices of bread. I was drawn to this nontraditional ham salad, which is made with chopped ham, cream cheese, and Dijon mustard and mango chutney for tang and sweetness. I used a spinoff of Major Grey's Chutney, a ginger-mango preserve created two centuries ago by a British Army officer. When combined with dense pumpernickel bread and thinly sliced cucumbers, the result is a tea sandwich with a spicy, lemon-tinged twist. The recipe, when you read on.

nancita, I got it at Cal-Mart in San Francisco. It was good, but very, very dense.
This looks like just my kind of sandwich. Where did you get that pumpernickel bread? it looks yummy!
