Author Notes

I’m not a big fan of mayonnaise based potato salads (especially if they are sitting out in the summer,) this German type uses no mayo and has a nice mustard kick and a little vinegar tang. —Erwinm

What You'll Need
  • 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes (cubed)
  • Koshers salt
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 1/2 pound Thick cut bacon
  • 1/2 Yellow onion (diced)
  • 1/2 Red onion (diced)
  • 1/2 cup Chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup Apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon or spicy brown mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon Ground pepper
  • 1 bunch Chives (finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon Parsley (minced) (optional)
  1. Place washed cubed potatoes in a pot, cover with water and add salt. Bring the pot to a boil then simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Coat a saute pan with olive oil and bring to a medium high heat. Cook the bacon in the pan until crisp. Once crisp, place on a paper towel and crumble into pieces. Pour off fat from pan, leaving around 2 tablespoons in the pan. Add yellow and red onion and cook until soft and aromatic, around 5-7 min.
  3. Wisk in the chicken stock, vinegar, mustard, paprika, pepper and add salt to taste. Stir until it thickens. Add in potatoes, and toss to coat.
  4. Toss in or top with bacon, chives and parsley if using. Serve warm or at room temp.
