Making hard boiled quail eggs
Quail Eggs: Aren't they just adorable??? How many of them can you have in just one sitting?
  1. Adding vinegar to the water softens the shell of the quail eggs and the shells can be peeled off easily without sticking to the eggs.
  2. Heat a saucepan, combine water and vinegar.
  3. Place the quail eggs in water, cover the pan.
  4. Let the water come to a rolling boil, cook the eggs for about 5 minutes.
  5. After around 5 minutes of cooking you can see that the shells are getting peeled.
  6. Drain the water and let the cooked eggs cool down.
  7. Peel the shells, it will be very easy to peel off the shells.
  8. Cut the hard boiled eggs into halves and keep aside.
Making potato salad
  1. I used small red potatoes for making this salad or use any baby potatoes or salad potatoes.
  2. Cook the potatoes in boiling water till it turns fork tender.
  3. Don't over cook the potatoes.
  4. I didn't remove the skin, if you want you could remove it.
  5. After the cooked potatoes have cooled down, dice into small.
  6. In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, dijon mustard, pickled jalapeno, olives, ground pepper and salt.
  7. Combine the mayonnaise dressing and the potatoes.
  8. I like my potato salad to be cold, so after combining with the mayonnaise dressing chill it in the refrigerator for some time.
  9. Just before serving, top the potato salad with hard boiled quail eggs that are halved. This is just optional you can ignore this step if you don't like eggs. Or use hen's egg instead.
  10. Sprinkle paprika over the halved eggs for making it colorful.
  11. Serve as a side dish.
Potato salad tastes better when it is served cold, so chill it in the refrigerator for sometime.
Make way ahead: Cook the potatoes and refrigerate it. Just before serving combine the potatoes with the mayonnaise dressing.
Use hen's egg instead of quail eggs.
