German Potato Salad

German Potato Salad -

This is a versatile summer side. It contains no mayonnaise and can be served hot or cold.

Boil 2-1/2 lbs. red potatoes until fork tender. When cool enough to handle, peel the skins and discard.

Cut the potatoes into bite size chunks and set aside.

While you are waiting for the potatoes to cool a bit, cook 5 slices of bacon, crumble the bacon and reserve 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease.

Saute 1/2 red onion in reserved bacon grease until soft.

In a large bowl, whisk together 1/2 apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup water, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon coarse salt, 2 teaspoons coarse ground brown mustard, 1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard.

Gently toss in potatoes, bacon and onions. Please toss gently or you will have smashed German Potato Salad. Garnish with finely minced flat-leaf parsley and paprika.

Bacon, but no mynez? What's the pernt? That's like ordering a mushroom burger and fries at Port-O-Call, and then getting a diet Barq's to go with it. You may as well go all the way to Cholesterol City and add the mynez. ;-)
