This updated picnic potato salad gets subtle flavor from smoked ham. If you can find them, small, thin-skinned early potatoes are best in this salad.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired.
2 pounds  small potatoes, preferably heirloom
1 cup  chopped celery
2 ounces  smoked ham, sliced into strips
1/4 cup  chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons  chopped fresh chives or scallions
2 tablespoons  chopped fresh mint or dill
3/4 cup  nonfat buttermilk
1 tablespoon  lemon juice
1 tablespoon  peanut or canola oil
1/2 teaspoon  salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
2   large hard-boiled eggs (see Tip), peeled and coarsely chopped

Tip: : To hard-boil eggs: Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling.

Place potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with water and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook, partially covered, until just tender, 12 to 20 minutes, depending on their size. Drain and let cool for about 15 minutes.

When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, taste a bit of potato skin—if it’s bitter or tough, peel the potatoes. Otherwise, leave the skins on. Cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces and put them in a large salad bowl.

Add celery, ham, parsley, chives (or scallions) and mint (or dill) to the potatoes. Toss to combine. Add buttermilk, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper; stir to combine. Gently stir in chopped egg. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

just wondering
I give this the rating I am because I haven't actually tried this recipe as of yet. But I am wondering how using sweet potatoes instead - sliced and cooking time adjusted for correct doneness - might be? I would think all the ingredients would go well including the dressing with sweet potatoes. Once I try this I am sure the rating will be at least what I posted. :D
