  • Cook potatoes in boiling water in saucepan 15 to 20 min. or just until tender; drain. Let stand 10 min. or just until cool enough to handle. Meanwhile, mix next 5 ingredients until blended.
  • Cut potatoes into quarters; place in large bowl. Add dressing mixture; mix lightly. Let stand 15 min.
  • Add all remaining ingredients except eggs; mix lightly. Top with eggs.

Special Extra

Use the fine side of a box grater to grate the egg whites, then yolks. Sprinkle separately over salad before serving.


Prepare using small fingerling potatoes, cutting cooked potatoes lengthwise in half instead of into quarters as directed in recipe.

Take Along

Pack the potato salad and grated eggs in separate airtight containers. Refrigerate until chilled before packing in a cooler to tote to your picnic or other destination. Top potato salad with eggs just before serving.

Make Ahead

This delicious potato salad can be prepared ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 24 hours before serving.
