Making a salad of tomato, cucumber and ham:

Step 1: Prepare the eggs.

Before you start making salad, you need to prepare chicken eggs by boiling them. To do this, draw in such a small amount of water into a small pot that it completely covers the eggs immersed in it. Put the saucepan on a fire, bring to a boil and cook over medium heat. 7-10 minutes. Then drain the boiling water and put the eggs to cool under a stream of cold water. This process may require from 3 to 5 minutes. Break and peel the cooled boiled eggs, then rinse with water and chop into large pieces of any size convenient for you.

Step 2: start mixing the salad.

Fold the boiled eggs in a deep salad bowl.
Open a can of canned corn and drain the excess liquid, and pour the corn grains to the eggs.
Peel the ham and crumble the straws or cubes, depending on what you like best.

Step 3: Add the vegetables.

Put all the vegetables in a colander and rinse thoroughly under a stream of warm running water, wiping them with your hands. Then pat and dry clean vegetables with paper towels.
Divide the tomato into two halves and cut out the place where the tail used to be. Then gently chop the tomato so as not to crush the flesh.
Cucumbers are best peeled so that they subsequently do not give the bitterness in the salad. After thorough cleaning, chop this ingredient into any pieces convenient for you.
Divide the bell pepper into two halves and remove the tail, then cut the seed core. Wipe the vegetable with a napkin from the inside to remove sticky seeds. Chop the peppers in small cubes.

Step 4: Sprinkle with herbs and season.

Rinse fresh dill in a colander, as well as vegetables, remember, squeezing out excess moisture and crumble into very small pieces. It is most convenient to chop greens not with a knife, but with kitchen scissors.
Sprinkle the salad with herbs, add salt to taste and season with mayonnaise. Mix everything thoroughly and check for enough salt. If all is well, then immediately proceed to serving the salad on the table.

Step 5: Serve a salad of tomatoes, cucumbers and ham.
