2 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon white pepper
1 lb. lean cooked ham or pork, cut INTO 2-inch pieces
3 fl. oz. mayonnaise

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1 small cucumber, thinly sliced
Lay the asparagus in a large serving dish and sprinkle over the marjoram, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Place the ham or pork in a large mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, eggs and parsley and, using two large spoons, toss the mixture so that it is evenly coated with the mayonnaise mixture.
