My favorite traditional German potato salad dressed with a dijon vinegar dressing and served warm. The perfect cold weather side dish!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 810 small red potatoes, scrubbed and washed
  • 6 strips of bacon
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped

Instructions

  1. Prep: Slice bacon into roughly 1″ pieces, dice onion, mince garlic.┬áSet aside.
  2. In a small bowl, stir to combine vinegar, water and sugar. Set aside.
  3. Fill a large pot with potatoes and fill with enough cold water to cover them. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, lower heat to medium high and let simmer for 15-20 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork. Drain, and return to stove top (without heat) and let sit while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  5. In a separate large pot over medium heat, heat bacon until browned and crispy. Turn off heat and remove bacon from pot with slotted spoon and set aside in a bowl, leaving bacon grease in pan.
  6. While grease cools a bit, cut potatoes into smaller chunks, roughly 1″ in size. Set aside.
  7. Carefully add onions to pan and heat, stirring frequently, for a few minutes over medium heat. Add garlic and stir frequently for an additional minute.
  8. Carefully add vinegar mixture, mustard, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Let simmer for a couple minutes then remove from heat.
  9. Add diced potatoes and bacon into pan, and gently stir to combine. Add parsley and stir a couple times to combine.
  10. Serve immediately and enjoy!
