Directions for: German Potato Salad


2 lb(s) Yukon gold potatoes, sliced 1/2-inch thick

4 oz bacon, chopped

Kosher Salt

1 yellow onion, chopped

2 ½ cups low-sodium chicken stock

¼ cup white wine vinegar

2 Tbsp grainy mustard

1 bunch chives, chopped


1. Place the sliced potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer and cook until fork tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes. Let cool slightly, then transfer the potatoes to a large bowl.

2. While the potatoes are cooking, place the bacon and some salt in a large saute pan. Cook over medium-low heat until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and add it to the bowl with the potatoes. Add the onions and a pinch of salt to the hot pan and cook until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock, vinegar, mustard and chives and bring to a boil. Pour the dressing over the potatoes and toss to coat.

3. Serve warm or at room temperature.
