Warm Potato Salad

  • Yield 10 servings

Savory, tart, and a little sweet, this potato salad is especially good with a hearty sandwich.


2 cups cider vinegar
2 cups packed brown sugar
8 cups water
1/3 cup salt
2 1/2 pounds unpeeled red potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
8 ounces bacon, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups sliced celery
1 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Combine the vinegar, brown sugar, water and salt in a 2-gallon saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook for 25 minutes or just until tender.
  2. Brown the bacon in a skillet. Combine the bacon, bacon drippings, celery, onion and olive oil in a bowl.
  3. Drain the potatoes and add to the bacon mixture. Mix gently and serve immediately.
