Ready In:
1hr 15mins




  • Place the potatoes in a medium-size pot and cover them with enough water to extend 2 inches above the surface of the potatoes. Salt the water and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Continue cooking until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and dice into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Set aside in a warm place.
  • Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once crisp, place on a paper towel-lined plate
  • Pour off the rendered fat, reserving 1/4 cup in the pan.
  • Turn the heat to medium and add the onion. Cook until translucent about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Whisk in the vinegar, sugar, mustard, and salt and stir until thick and bubbly. Add the diced, cooked potatoes and toss to coat.
  • Top with crumbled Chavrie® Goat Log, bacon and garnish with the chives.
  • Serve warm.

    GREAT! I made it just as she written except for no bacon grease (vegetarian in the house) but added crumbled bacon at the end. VERY very good. Thanks for posting!

    What a fantastic dish! I couldn't find the goat cheese, but it was still scrumptious without. My finicky son who "doesn't like potato salad" ate enough to fill a cereal bowl! Thanks for sharing, we'll add this delicious dish to our summer repertoire.

    Absolutely delicious and very, very easy to make! I left out the bacon & it still came out great! I have a BBQ this weekend, and I will be, without a doubt, bringing this along.
