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

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.
