  1. Heat a large cast-iron pan over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the ham and scallions. Cook until the scallions are charred and the ham is lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside to cool completely.
  2. Put the potatoes in a large pot with heavily-salted cold water to cover by about an inch (add as much salt as you would to pasta water). Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain in a colander and return the potatoes to the still-hot pot, tossing them to cook out any residual moisture. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the brine and 1 teaspoon salt to season the potatoes while still hot so they absorb the flavor. Toss very well. Let cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, mustard, sugar, garlic powder, remaining 2 tablespoons brine, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper until smooth. Fold in the potatoes, cooled scallions and ham, eggs, cornichon, celery, parsley and dill. Toss to completely coat the potatoes with the dressing. Sprinkle with additional parsley and dill to garnish. Serve at room temperature or cover and chill until cold, at least 2 hours. This can be made a day ahead. Taste before serving, as you may need to add more salt once it’s chilled.
