Who says potato salad can't be made without mayonnaise? German Potato Salad has been made that way for years. Try our recipe for a true classic.
What You'll Need:
- 4 pounds Idaho potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
- 8 slices bacon
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
What To Do:
- Cook potatoes in a large pot of boiling water 10 to 15 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain, place in a large bowl, and set aside.
- In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until browned and crisp, turning as needed. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Add oil and onion to bacon grease and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until onion is soft. Stir in vinegar, water, sugar and salt,; bring to a boil. Gently stir in potatoes and parsley.
- Crumble in half of bacon, stir and heat until warmed through. Remove to a serving dish, crumble remaining bacon over top, and serve warm.
- The potatoes in German Potato Salad are usually sliced, rather than cubed, but you're the boss...make whatever shape your gang prefers.
