  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise

In a small bowl, combine the mustard and mayonnaise. Add to the potato and egg mixture and mix until coated well. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle paprika on top of the potato and egg salad before serving, if desired.
