Luchow Hot Potato Salad With Bacon Aka Speck Salat

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by drhousespcatcher

Luchow was a famous German resturant in NYC. I have made this recipe since I was 13 and always have had demands for the recipe. The last time I made it for the family picnic, I had to wack the kid with a spoon to keep her out of it before I served it. Wonderful sweet sour taste. This does not expand easily. If more is needed I would recommend making another batch rather than doubling.

This is like no other potato salad. It's got a vinegary taste that may not appeal to everyone, but I found it to be tasty.
