3. Place all the ingredients except the ham in a bowl. Pour over the olive oil and lemon juice, season and mix well. Put aside.
4. Meanwhile, hard boil the egg for 10 minutes. Shell and slice. Pour a little of the aspic jelly, half set, into the bottom of the mould and place in the freezer. Wash and dry the mint leaves.
5. At the bottom of the mould place the egg slices, alternating with the mint leaves.
