I know, what am I doing posting a salad recipe when it is almost WINTER!!! Because it is a hot salad and great with a pork roast. I have been making this for quite sometime and just came across it in my Kraft Foods Recipe Box today. If you are not familiar with the Kraft Foods site, once you sign up you can maintain your recipes online. Wherever you are at in the world you can go online and find that special recipe when you are at a friend’s house! Of course, it is also great with schnitzel or German sausage or bratwurst. It does make a large salad so cut the ingredients in half for two people. How much bacon you want to use is a personal preference…..
Hot German Potato Salad
6 medium potatoes, peeled, cooked and sliced (they look better peeled).
8 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp. flour
1/2cup cider or white vinegar
1/4tsp. each: Salt and pepper
PLACE potatoes in large bowl; set aside.
COOK and stir bacon in skillet on medium heat to desired crispness. Remove bacon from skillet; drain, reserving 2 Tbsp. drippings in skillet. Set bacon aside.
ADD onion and celery to skillet; cook and stir until celery is crisp-tender. Blend in flour. Stir in water, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and bacon. Bring to boil. Cook on medium heat 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Pour over potatoes; mix lightly. Serve warm.
