Ham takes the place of bacon in this version of the classic.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 2 cups)


  • 2 pounds small red potatoes
  • 1 cup finely chopped Simple Baked Ham (about 5 ounces)
  • 1 cup finely chopped celery
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley


Place potatoes in a large Dutch oven; cover with water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool slightly. Cut potatoes into quarters; place in a large bowl. Add Simple Baked Ham and next 7 ingredients (through black pepper). Toss gently to combine. Sprinkle with parsley.
