Removing Tile from Formica Countertops

How can I remove ceramic tile from Formica countertops? I am hoping to salvage the original Formica until I am able to replace it. I also have the tile as a back splash under upper cabinets and behind the stove but I would like to leave that intact. Any suggestions? Thanks.

If the tile was installed correctly, you can't. The correct method would have been to sand or rough up the formica so that it would take the adhesive for the tile.
