Put the eggs in a large pot and add enough water to cover them by 1-inch. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Let boil for 1 minute then turn off the heat, cover the eggs and let sit for 10 minutes. Drain the eggs and immediately submerge them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Let sit for 10 minutes. Peel the eggs, cut them in half and separate the whites from the yolks. Transfer the yolks to a medium bowl. Chop 12 egg halves into 1/2-inch pieces and set aside. Place the remaining 12 egg halves, cut side up, on a cutting board or plate.
Add 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon yellow mustard, 1 tablespoon vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the egg yolks. Mash with a fork until well combined then stir vigorously to smooth out any lumps. Reserve 1/4 cup of the mixture and transfer the rest to a large resealable plastic bag. Snip a 1/2-inch piece off 1 corner of the bag and pipe the mixture into the center of the egg whites on the cutting board. Refrigerate until ready to use.
