German Potato Salad

Photo by: Joseph DeLeo

Cider vinegar, salty bacon, and scallions lend their flavors to not-too-starchy Yukon Gold potatoes (that means Yukons hold up well in salads and hold flavor when mixed with other ingredients). Since there’s no mayonnaise, this is the perfect salad to take along to a picnic or tailgate party.

Yield: Serves 4

INGREDIENTS
  • 6 small to medium Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • ½ cup chopped scallions (white and green parts; about 6 scallions)
  • 4 slices turkey bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

1. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and pour over enough water to cover. Set the pan over high heat, bring to a boil, and let boil until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and, while still warm, transfer to a large bowl.

2. Add the scallions, bacon, vinegar, and oil and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or chilled.

Notes

Make it a meal kit: Make the salad and store in a sealable container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

Have it your way: You may substitute red potatoes for the Yukon Golds if desired. You can also substitute red wine vinegar or sherry vinegar for the cider vinegar
