A little ham lends a smoky flavor to this salad. The lemon buttermilk dressing offers a nice departure from the usual mayonnaise laden salads. Use leftover roasted potatoes to bring this dish together quickly, with no fuss.

Tip: You can get around buying buttermilk by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to 1 cup of milk.


  • 2 lbs. small potatoes, cooked and cubed
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 oz. smoked ham, cubed
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint or dill
  • ¾ cup low fat buttermilk
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Pepper to taste


  1. Gently toss potatoes, celery, ham, parsley, chives  and mint (or dill).
  2. Whisk together remaining ingredients and stir into potato mix. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
