Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: German
Servings: 6 servings


  • Medium stock pot or saucepan to boil potatoes


  • 3 pounds Potatoes, preferably Yukon Gold You can substitute another variety of thin-skinned potato.
  • 1 tsp Salt You will need additional salt for the water in which you are boiling the potatoes.
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper
  • 2 tsp Sucanat In a pinch, you can use white sugar. You can also substitute honey. If you use honey, dissolve it first in the apple cider vinegar.
  • 1 tbsp Mustard, preferably a grainy variety
  • 1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar, preferably raw
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 bunch Green onions, sliced thin crosswise
  • 4 slices Bacon, cooked and chopped fine


  • Peel potatoes and cut into bite-sized pieces.
  • Boil potatoes in well-salted water for approximately 10 minutes until fork tender.
  • While potatoes are boiling, prepare the dressing. Mix vinegar, salt, pepper, Sucanat, and mustard in a bottle or jar with a tight-fitting lid. Give the jar a good shake until everything is well mixed.
  • Remove the lid and add the olive oil. Replace the lid and give the jar another good shake to help emulsify the dressing.
  • Once cooked, drain the potatoes and place into a serving bowl. Pour the dressing over the potatoes while they are still hot and toss well. (See video.)
  • Add green onions and bacon to the potatoes. Toss well and serve hot or at room temperature. Enjoy!
