    I remember our Woolworth's counter fondly too. It was a special treat to have a real soda fountain drink and a grilled cheese. Love the memory and the recipe.

    How cool. I have never had this at Woolworth's but my son's great grandma used to make this for us for lunch all the time. I never got her recipe, but this sounds like I remember. Will definitely be making - and of course you've got to have potato chips ! Thanks wynne.

    Boy! This brings back some fun memories! Thanks for the post...I must try it to see if it's just the memory, as you said, or the actual ham salad :)

    Awesome! I worked at Woolworth's in Cosmetics when I was a kid (not too long before they unfortuneately closed), and used to eat at the lunch counter on Fridays when I got paid - great post!
