Step 1Place the rice in a large saucepan, cover generously with water and add 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil, add the ham and reduce the heat to cook at a simmer. When the rice is tender, about 15 to 20 minutes, add the sugar snap peas, then immediately drain the rice, ham and peas and rinse them lightly in running water.
Step 2Empty the mixture into a bowl and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon vinegar. Add the green onions and mix well. Spread as thin as possible across the bottom of the bowl to cool and dry.
Step 3Just before serving, mix together the remaining tablespoon of vinegar and the olive oil. Add this dressing to the rice along with the provolone and mix everything together well. Taste and adjust the seasoning for salt. Serve at room temperature.
