Dante’s Loaded Potato Salad

During the summer, I like to include a lot of picnic and BBQ meals into my weekly summer meal plans. Potato salad is one that I make quite often, and it’s one of our son’s favorite recipes. The whole family loves potato salad but they are not very fond of mayonnaise. Since I started making my own Greek Yogurt, I was inspired to create this version of our son’s favorite potato salad for our 4th of July BBQ. Instead of using bacon, I added ham (lower in calories and healthier choice) and for a little bit of a tangy kick some ranch dressing.

Dante’s Loaded Potato Salad


2 pounds potatoes
3 celery stalks, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
3/4 cup dill pickle, chopped
1 cup honey ham, chopped
1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 Tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup Ranch dressing
2 eggs, harboiled, peeled and chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
Garnish with chopped parsley or chopped chives (optional)


  • In a large pot of salted water, boil the potatoes until tender (approximately 15 minutes.) Drain and cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the cooled potatoes, the ham, celey, pickle, red onion, Greek yogurt, and cheese. Stir gently to combine. Add in seasonings. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  •  Chill before serving.
