Ham ‘n’ Cheese Potato Salad

This is one potato salad that's hearty enough to be a main dish. My family especially likes to take it along when we go on picnics. -Tamara Sellman, Barrington, Illinois

    This was an absolute hit at my house. I loved all the flavors in this potato salad. It's the first potato salad that my husband asked me to make sure there were leftovers of so he could take it to work the next day. Now that's saying alot!

    This is by far the best potato salad...ever . A little bit of prep work but it is worth it!

    This recipe is great! You can also use diced chicken in place of ham.

    This recipe is by far my husbands most favorite potato salad recipe. It is not wimpy or skimpy. My husband loves his meals and is a fairly picky eater. This he is crazy about. Try it!! You won't be disappointed!!
