Salad can be made ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 24 hours before serving.
How to Hard Cook Eggs
Place eggs in single layer in saucepan. Add enough water to saucepan to completely cover eggs by at least 1 inch. Bring water to boil; cover. Remove saucepan from heat. Let eggs stand 20 min. Add eggs immediately to a bowl of ice water. Let stand until completely cooled. Perfectly hard-cooked eggs will have a firm yellow center with no greenish tinge. Hard-cooked eggs in their shells can be refrigerated up to 1 week.
The potatoes in this salad are cooked until very tender so that, when mixed with the other ingredients, the chunks lose their shape or are "smashed."
