  • Yield: 4 1x



  • 4 slices of a nice deli style seeded rye bread, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 3 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 3 tablespoons Miracle Whip
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup chopped celery (3 ribs)
  • 1/2 pound thickly sliced smoked ham, cut into cubes
  • 6 ounces Swiss cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced small


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Place cubed bread on a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray ( I use coconut oil spray). Bake for 15 minutes, stirring once, until lightly toasted. Let cool.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the mustard with the Miracle Whip and vinegar. Gradually whisk in the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil and season with pepper and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl place diced red onion and cold water to cover. Allow the red onion to set for about 15 minutes. ( this will take the bite out of the onion), then drain.
  4. In a large bowl place celery, ham, cheese, drained red onion and the rye bread croutons. Top with reserved mustard dressing and toss to coat and serve.
