Preparation Time20 min
Chilling Time12 min
- 12 small red potatoes, about 2-inch size
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
- 2 green onions, finely minced (about 2 tablespoons)
- 2 tablespoons finely minced celery
- 2 tablespoons finely minced parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika, plus more for garnish
In a 5.2 quart stockpot, place the potatoes and cover with water. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and cook at a low boil for 17 -20 minutes, until potatoes are tender but not mushy when pierced with the tip of a paring knife. Drain.
In another pot, place the eggs, cover with water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 12 minutes. Drain, chill in ice water, and peel.
In a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard and vinegar and stir until smooth, then add half of the salt, the onion, celery, parsley and paprika, stirring to combine.
Chop the eggs finely and add to the bowl with the dressing.
Cut each potato in half at the equator and use a spoon or melon baller to scoop out the center, leaving a thin but sturdy shell. Chop the scooped out potato into small cubes and add to the bowl. Set the potato cups on a serving dish and sprinkle lightly with salt.
Mix the potatoes and eggs with the dressing until all the ingredients are mixed and then spoon into the shells. Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika, a bit of parsley and very finely chopped green onion. If not serving immediately, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving time.
