Warm German Potato Salad | #SundaySupper

I’m so excited to finally be participatiing in another Sunday Supper! I haven’t had the pleasure since we left Alaska, and at last I am settled in my new home and life can get back to normal – just in time for summer! And speaking of summer, today’s Sunday Supper is all about the Summer BBQ!

I’m sharing with you my warm German Potato Salad.

Warm German Potato Salad from Cosmopolitan Cornbread



To begin, wash and cut about 3 lb of potatoes into 1 inch pieces. Peel them if you like, I prefer to leave the skin on the yellow potatoes.


Drop them in a large pot and add enough cold water to cover them by and inch or so, along with a teaspoon or so of salt. Bring them to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until they are just fork tender.

Meanwhile, finely dice or mince about a cup of red onion.


Set that aside and dice up 7 or 8 slices of bacon. Toss them in a skillet and cook it until it is golden and crispy.


When it is cooked, using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Let the bacon set there for now.


Add the diced onion to the bacon drippings and cook it over medium low heat until the onion is tender.


When the potatoes are just fork-tender, drain the liquid out and place them in a large bowl.


When the onions are tender, stir in 1/2 cup vegetable broth, 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar, a teaspoon of sugar, and some salt & pepper. Let it simmer together for just a minute.


Toss the bacon in with the potatoes and then pour the liquid and onions over all of it.


Fold everything together and then sprinkle in 2 teaspoons of dried parsley or some minced chives. Allow it to cool a few minutes and serve the salad warm or room temperature.

    Bet that zing of the apple cider vinegar with the rich Yukon golds makes for a perfect blend. And of course the addition of bacon into anything never hurts =)

    So glad to see you back at SundaySupper. And glad you are settled in to your new home, Conni =)

    Hi Conni! I'm trying to figure the nutrition for this recipe. How many servings does this recipe make? I don't see it in the post and I'm a horrible estimator.

    I love cooking my veggies in the bacon grease. So delicious. This potato salad sounds great-I'm not really a fan of mayonnaise so this sounds so much better!
