The fragrance seemed to pull me toward a large cast iron kettle filled to the brim with potatoes, onions, and bacon. I asked the attendant for a serving of whatever-that-is, and she genuinely seemed concerned that I was unfamiliar with german potato salad.


Never had I tasted potato salad that was so rich and tangy with a hint of sweetness… Plus it was warm, not cold, like the potato salads I was used to.

Meanwhile, sizzle the bacon in a large saute pan or deep skillet. Pour off some of the bacon grease, and cook the onion with the bacon until soft and golden.

Whisk apple cider vinegar, water, whole grain dijon mustard, and sugar to make the tangy dressing. Then toss it with the chopped potatoes and parsley. You’ll have a warm comforting potato salad the whole family with love!
