German Potato Salad Recipe

A traditional German potato salad recipe full of flavor and bacon, and dressed with a dijon vinegar dressing and served warm. The perfect side dish!


In a small bowl, stir to combine vinegar, water and sugar.


Fill a large pot with potatoes and enough cold water to cover them. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil.


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.


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.

While grease cools a bit, cut potatoes into smaller chunks, roughly 1″ in size. Set aside.



Add onions to pan and heat, stirring frequently, for a few minutes over medium heat. Add garlic and stir frequently for an additional minute.

Add vinegar mixture, mustard, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Let simmer for a couple minutes then remove from heat.


Add diced potatoes and bacon into pan, and gently stir to combine. Add parsley and stir to combine.


Serve immediately and enjoy!
