    Like the coleslaw served by mom, this recipe was adopted especially for Sister - who is violently opposed to all things mayo!

    Serves: 4


    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Scrub the potatoes under running water with a soft brush. Quarter them and drop them into a kettle of cold, salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender but still firm, 8 to 10 minutes after the water reaches a boil.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, chop the bacon and saute in a small skillet until crisp. Remove bacon and reserve.
    3. 3
      In the bacon fat remaining in the skillet, saute chopped shallots until tender but not at all browned, 5 minutes or so. Reserve shallots and fat.
    4. 4
      When the potatoes are done, drain them and drop them into a mixing bowl.
    5. 5
      Pour vinegar, olive oil, shallots and reserved bacon fat over the still-hot potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and gently toss. Add purple onion and parsley and toss again. Cool to room temperature, cover, and refrigerate.
    6. 6
      Before serving bring back to room temperature, toss, correct seasoning and add additional oil and vinegar if the salad seems dry. Sprinkle reserved crisp bacon on top.
