This German potato salad is a nice change of pace from the mayonnaise-based salads. The dressing is a bacon-flavored sweet-sour mixture, making it lighter than most.
12 strips bacon, divided
6 cups diced potatoes
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vinegar
3/4 cup water
2 large hard-cooked eggs
2 tablespoons sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped parsley, for garnish
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Dice 6 strips of the bacon.
Fry the diced bacon along with the 6 whole strips in a heavy skillet over medium heat.
Remove the whole slices to paper towels to drain; set aside.
Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until fork-tender. Drain and keep hot.
Combine the sugar, cornstarch, salt, vinegar, and water; slowly add it to diced bacon and bacon drippings in the skillet, cooking and stirring constantly over medium heat until thickened.
Put the hot potatoes in a large bowl with the sliced hard-boiled eggs.
Add the green onions and then gently toss with the hot dressing.
Garnish with the whole bacon slices and a tablespoon or two of chopped parsley; serve hot.
