    Add celery,radishes,cucumber and onion to mayonnaise mixture - toss. Add potatoes, toss gently. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Smooth slightly across top;add sliced eggs across top of potato salad. Sprinkle a dusting of Paprika over top. Chill and serve. Any left overs can be stored chilled in a closed container for 3-4 days. It never last that long, storing is my least concern.
