Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner
Yield 8 servings (serving size: 2 ounces ham)
This simple dish doesn't take long to cook and is best when prepared the morning of the brunch. If you need a head start, however, you can mince the shallots and cut the ham the day before.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup minced shallots
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 4 (4-ounce) slices smoked ham (about 1/4 inch thick), cut into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
