    Ms*Bindy's Note:

    I absolutely adore this salad. I like it enough I will actually eat bacon! Based on the way my MIL makes German Potato salad, this is probably not vinegary enough to be authentic, but I love it just the way it is. I hope you like it too.

      I am evil and used the bacon fat instead of the oil. I guess I will die sooner, but happier. Thanks!

      I made this recipe exactly as written with no deviations. I am appointing 3 stars for ease of preparation, great directions and the ability to make this in the AM and reheat it at serving time. I made this for a BBQ yesterday and had a large portion of it left over. I had 10 guests and no one really cared for this recipe at all. It had a very strong vinegar taste and was oily, which is a dead recipe to me. I always try to make a recipe exactly as written the first time and if I want to make it again, I may tweak it where needed. But, unfortunately, I do not think I will be making this again. It very well may be because of the the part of the country we live, we are not accustomed to such a dish and flavor combinations.

      This was great, although I made a few changes. I scaled it to serve 20 (!). I swapped the quantities of oil and vinegar, and I also put about a tablespoon of mustard in with the bacon and onion, it gave it a wonderful flavour. My husband has requested the leftovers as lunchpacks with nothing else! Thanks I'll make it again.
