How to Cook German-style Potato Salad
- Without peeling them, place the potatoes in a large pan, cover by about 2" (5cm) with salted water and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are tender, about 20-25 minutes. When the potatoes are cooked, drain, transfer to a large bowl, and keep warm.
- Peel and chop the onion. Roughly chop the bacon and cook in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until crispy and the fat has been rendered, (about 4-5 minutes). Lower the heat to medium, add the chopped onion and cook, stirring, until translucent, (about 6-7 minutes). Stir in the flour and cook for 45 seconds more. Add 2 teaspoons of salt, the chicken stock, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard and sugar. Bring to the boil whilst whisking constantly. Remove from the heat.
- Using your hands, rub the skins off the potatoes (if you are using new potatoes, don't bother peeling them). Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise into ¼" (6mm) thick slices . Return the potatoes to the large bowl and pour the vinegar mixture over, toss to coat. Toss in the chopped parsley and season with freshly-ground black pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately.
GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
This potato salad is at its best served immediately or shortly afterwards at room temperature.

This potato salad is so full of flavor and is such a nice change from the traditional, southern style potato salad. I have served this several times for casual entertaining, and everyone has loved it! Nice presentation, as well

Super easy and super delicious! Wouldn't change a thing except I cut the potatoes into quarters for a faster cooking time and peeled them first so I wouldn't have to later. I don't think it changed the taste any. The whole family went nuts over this! Whatever your thoughts, don't pass up a wonderful experience that may broaden your culinary horizons.

Made this recipe for an buffet-style party and it was a real hit! It sat at room temp for about half-an-hour before being served so the dressing was well soaked up. It was very tasty and everyone loved it! Will definitely make again and maybe serve with smoked sausage.
