    Chef Lyle's Note:

    Authentic German Potato salad is usually served warm or at room temperature, but however you eat it this salad is absolutely delicious. I must confess that I start eating it as soon as it is mixed, and some say it is even better after it has set for a few hours or the next day.

    1. 1
      Boil peeled or skins-on (according to your preference) potatoes in water and bouillon for 15-20 minutes. (This may take longer if you are at high altitude). Don't let them get too soft - a fork should go in but the potatoes should not fall apart.
    2. 2
      Fry bacon and crumble bacon into small pieces.
    3. 3
      Dice the white onion and fry it in the bacon grease.
    4. 4
      Chop the potatoes into cubes.
    5. 5
      Mix the bacon, white onion, oil, mustard, and vinegar together in a bowl that will be large enough to hold your potatoes.
    6. 6
      Chop the green onions.
    7. 7
      Toss the cooled potatoes in your sauce along with the green onions.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle with parsley, salt and pepper to taste.

      Made for Fall PAC 2012 and so glad I did. I did cut the recipe in half for DH and I but I will be making this again. Served this with Salsa Burgers#182564.

      This is a very good recipe for German potato salad. I recommend using Dusseldorf mustard. The proportions were on point. This type of potato salad is best eaten warm if not hot! Try it with bratwurst. Thanks!! PS - Did not use the green onions - never have, never will. Just don't think it's necessary as the flavors without are already amazing.
