A true German Potato Salad recipe combines hot potatoes, vinegar, and hot bacon fat. If you’re seeking a delicious warm and savory potato salad without mayonnaise, this will hit the spot!

5 strips bacon
2 pounds cooked potatoes
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 medium red or yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
