2. In a bowl, mix together shallots, mustard and garlic. Grind the pepper in the roughest pieces possible and add to the mustard. Very slowly whisk in the olive oil in a thin stream as you would for mayonnaise, then stir in parsley. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before serving.
Note: The original recipe calls for using 2 teaspoons fleur de sel stirred into the sauce after the parsley. We omitted it because of the saltiness of the ham, but when serving with other foods such as chicken or fish it can be added.
