Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 4 large potatoes (about 1-1/2 lb/750 g), peeled
  • 1/2 Vidalia onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 sweet onion finely chopped
  • 2 ribs celery diced
  • 1/2 cup diced gherkin pickle
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Method

Place eggs in saucepan; cover with at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) cold water. Cover and bring to boil over high heat; remove from heat and let stand for 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and let cool; coarsely chop into chunks. Place in large bowl.

Peel and chop eggs. Add to potatoes along with onion, celery and pickles, breaking up slightly with potato masher.

In small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt, pepper and paprika. Add to potatoes, mixing well. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
