German Potato Salad

July 19, 2022
from NYT Cooking

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boiling potatoes, scrubbed but not peeled
  • 4 strips bacon
  • 1 bunch scallions, trimmed and cut into thin slices, including some of the green
  • ½ cup minced celery, including some leaves
  • ½ cup cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  •  teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon dry mustard

Directions

  1. Cut the potatoes in half if they are large, put them in a pot and add enough lightly salted water to cover them by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, and boil gently, uncovered, for about 15 minutes, until just tender. Drain.
  2. While the potatoes are still warm, peel and slice, or cube them, into a large serving bowl.
  3. In a skillet, cook the bacon until crisp. Drain. Pour out all but 2 tablespoons of bacon fat. Add scallions and celery, and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Mix with potato pieces.
  4. In the same skillet, mix 1/4 cup of water with cider vinegar, sugar, salt, paprika and dry mustard. Stirring with a whisk, bring to a boil and pour over salad. Crumble bacon over the top, and serve warm.
