German Potato Salad Recipe

2 pounds red or waxy potatoes
4 slices bacon

1 small onion, diced

1 cup chopped celery

1 dill pickle, chopped, optional

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup white wine vinegar or cider vinegar

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon dry mustard, optional

Salt and pepper, to taste

In large pot, place potatoes and enough salt water to cover; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain, peel and slice. Place still-warm potatoes in bowl. 

In skillet, fry bacon until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels, then crumble and add to potatoes. Discard all but 2 tablespoons bacon fat from skillet; add onion, celery and pickle. Cook until golden. Add water, vinegar, sugar, paprika, mustard, salt and pepper; bring just to a boil. 

Pour dressing over potatoes and toss gently to coat. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
