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—try this adaptation of the classic.
In a large skillet, fry the bacon until crisp, remove, cut into small pieces, and set aside. Slice cooked potatoes while they’re still warm, and sprinkle with vinegar. Add onion to bacon drippings (add oil if necessary) and cook onion until soft. Toss with warm sliced potatoes. Add bacon pieces and parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature.
