Expert Tips

For 13 grams of fat and 210 calories per serving, use reduced-fat mayonnaise and 2 eggs.

Potato salad lovers know the secret to perfect potato salad--it starts with the potatoes! Round red or round white potatoes are best because they are a waxy variety, holding their shape after cooking. Starchy potatoes (long white), like Idaho and russets, have a fluffy texture after cooking so can become too soft and mushy for potato salad.

Directions

  • 1 Place potatoes in 3-quart saucepan; add enough water just to cover potatoes. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cook covered 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Cut potatoes into cubes.
  • 2 In large glass or plastic bowl, mix mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Add potatoes, celery and onion; toss. Stir in eggs. Sprinkle with paprika.
  • 3 Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours to blend flavors and chill. Store covered in refrigerator.
