Mekeni Christmas Ham Recipe: Ham & Avocado Salad
The most wonderful time of the year is here. Although we don’t really celebrate Christmas (because of different spiritual belief), my family make sure that we still have a little feast at home. I grew up seeing ham, queso de bola, salad, and hot chocolate in the table during Holiday Season.
Ham will always be the centerpiece, and we indulge in this seasonal product just like the variety of hams of Mekeni that are perfect for every celebration and occasions. Even if it is perfect as it is, I personally love how versatile ham is and you can be playful and creative with the recipes.
Mekeni Ham comes in 4 different variants – from premium cuts to ham that suit your budget.
ALL SEASONS PREMIUM HAM (1 KG FOR Php 580 SRP)
Smoky and aromatic. The All Seasons Premium Ham is seasoned with a rare blend of exotic herbs and spices and made from the choicest pork cuts.
DELI PREMIUM HAM (1 KG FOR Php 500 SRP)
A no-frills ready-to-eat ham. Mekeni’s Deli Premium Ham has the traditional sweet-savory taste that kids and kids-at-heart will love.
PIÑA HAM (1 KG FOR Php 330 SRP)
Pineapple in ham is A-okay! Mekeni’s Piña Ham has the right balance of smoky, sweet, and salty flavors. It is perfectly seasoned and glazed with a rich coating of pineapple sauce, making you finish your ham with so much gusto in no time.

Sharing with you guys my current favorite ways to enjoy Mekeni Ham.
MEKENI CHRISTMAS HAM AND AVOCADO SALAD
I want to find balance in the food that I eat, and I make sure that I incorporate healthy ingredients in my meal that also add flavor and color to my recipe.
The recipe is pretty flexible, you can add whatever ingredients you have at home.
What you will need:
3 pcs avocado
boiled egg, sliced
Greek Yogurt dressing
Prepare and slice ingredients, toss them together. Serve and enjoy!
Other ingredients you can add on this recipe are orange slices, red onion, cucumber and corn.
HAM, CHEESE AND TOMATO GRILLED SANDWICH
My friends know I love Grilled Cheese Sandwich. To add protein in this favorite recipe, I added slice of Mekeni Ham.
What you will need:
Simple instructions below:
1. Heat slices of bread with butter.
2. Assemble sandwich by layering cheese, Mekeni Ham and tomatoes.
3. Grill / or heat in the microwave for 10 seconds.
I mistakenly heated it for 30 seconds (and my friend called),
thus the cheese over melted.
Anyway, photos need not always perfect. It is delicious!
