Salad with Mozzarella and Ham

Total time: 20 minutes 
    A cold salad can be just the thing for a hot summer evening.  Other than the eggs, nothing is cooked; just assemble and serve.  The small mozzarella balls are great for tossing with a salad; if you can't find them, just roughly chop half of a larger, whole mozzarella. Serve some crusty, country bread on the side, if you like.
