Indoor Picnic Potato Salad

Indoor Picnic Potato Salad

Better make a double batch, as your guests will surely be back for seconds.


12 red potatoes
6 hard boiled eggs (simmer 15 minutes)
1/2 grated small white onion
1 rib celery, chopped finely
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup lowfat mayonnaise
Minced parsley and paprika for garnish, optional


Boil potatoes on medium for 40 minutes, until tender when poked. When eggs are boiled, drain boiling water off, then cover with cold water. Leave eggs in pan with cold water, and tap each one against side of pan to crack shells. When completely cool, drain water from eggs and peel. (HINT: Cracking them in water makes peeling a snap.) Drain water from potatoes and allow to cool to room temperature.

Dice potatoes--peel only if you want to, as they taste great with peels left on--and peeled eggs into a big mixing bowl. Lightly stir in onions, celery, and vinegar. Add salt and pepper and mayo, and lightly toss to coat. Garnish as desired. Chill, covered, for 2 hours. Serves 8.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
