Serving size:
1 skewer

Cut bread into 2-inch cubes. (If your loaf weighs more than 1/2 pound, tightly wrap remaining bread, and store at room temperature for another use.) Cut ham steak into approximately 1-inch squares, for a total of 16 squares. Cut mozzarella into 4 one-ounce squares. Roll up lettuce leaves from one end to the other into a little bundle. To assemble sandwich, place a cube of bread on a skewer, then follow with 4 squares of ham, 1 square of cheese, 2 tomatoes, the lettuce bundle, and another piece of bread. Add a baby kosher dill pickle to the end of the skewer.

Note: For those following a lower-sodium diet, omit the pickle and replace the cheese with a slice of red pepper to reduce sodium by about 375 mg.
