German Potato Salad

I can't say I've ever made this because I don't especially care for it, but it is a big favorite at family picnics every summer. My sister, Kay, makes it best- or so I am told by my husband who wishes I would make it.

  • 2 lbs. red potatoes boiled and sliced thin
  • 1 med. onion sliced thin
  • 4-5 slices bacon
  • 2 piece of celery sliced thin
  • 1/2 c. vinegar
  • 1/4 veg. oil
  • 1 Tbs. minced parsley

Fry bacon until crisp, drain off most of the fat. Add vinegar, oil and a little sugar if too sour.
Combine remaining ingredients and add bacon mixture.
Toss lightly to mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

This is good served warm or cold.
