Salads are very popular in the summer and probably one of the most versatile of all dishes to prepare.  They are easy to prepare and provide that extra touch to round out a meal.  In fact, in many cases they are the meal. 

German Potato Salad


3 lbs. small red potatoes

1  bunch spring green onion, chopped with tops included

6 slices bacon, diced

3 Tbsp. flour

1½ tsp. salt

¼  tsp. black pepper

½ cup sugar

1  cup apple cider vinegar

1  cup water


Wash potatoes; do not peel.  Place in large saucepan and cover with water; boil over medium heat just until tender, not soft and mushy. Drain & cool slightly. Peel and cut into thin slices.  Place in a large bowl and add chopped onions; set aside

While potatoes are boiling, fry bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove and place pieces on paper towel to drain, keeping drippings in skillet.  Add fried bacon to potatoes in bowl. Combine flour, salt, black pepper and sugar and add to bacon drippings in skillet and stir over medium heat, forming a “paste”.  Stir in vinegar and water, whisking till smooth. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes, whisking constantly. Pour this hot mixture over potato mixture and stir gently to combine.  Best served warm or room temperature. But it’s also good cold for picnics and covered dish suppers.
