An old-fashioned warm potato salad recipe, with a distinctive sweet and sour bite. This salad goes great with barbecued burgers on a hot, summer night and is a welcome change from regular old potato salad with mayonnaise.
Warm Potato Salad with Crispy Bacon
- 6 slices bacon, sliced into 1/4 strips
- 4 potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 small onion, minced
- 2 spring onions, chopped
- 1/3 cup cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Microwave diced potatoes with a bowl with bit of water for 4-5 minutes on high, stopping the oven to stir the potatoes 2-3 times.
While the potatoes are cooking, saute bacon for 5-6 minute in a large frying pan until crispy but still tender.
Add the white and green onions to the bacon and saute together for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the potatoes when they are finished in the microwave and saute everything together for 7-8 minutes, stirring often.
In a measuring cup, combine cider vinegar, water, sugar, salt and pepper. Add this sauce to the potatoes, cover pan, and cook for another 5-10 minutes, until potatoes are cooked.
