German Potato Salad
Easy potato salad with rich flavor that will have you going back for more.
Serves four to six people
½ pound bacon (diced)
1 medium size onion (diced)
2 tablespoons vinegar (or to taste)
3 tablespoons mayonnaise (or to taste)
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Boil potatoes in their skins, (this retains the flavor of the potato better) carefully drain water and let potatoes cool. Once cooled peel potatoes and slice them into large bowl.
Dice bacon and fry in pan until crisp. Remove bacon and fry diced onions in same pan with bacon drippings until onions are transparent.
Mix fried bacon, onions and bacon drippings into the large bowl with potatoes. Add 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (or as desired) and splash of vinegar (around 1 or 2 tablespoons depending on your preference). Add salt and pepper to taste.
