German Potato Salad 
(a 4th of July Must Have, along with Mom's decadent Pina Coladas~)

net bag of tiny red potatoes, maybe 3 Cups?
Boil or microwave til tender. 
Rinse and slice into bowl with chopped celery
and scant 1/4 C of finely minced sweet Vidalia or red onion, or to taste. 
[but not a really onion-y recipe, just a hint!].
Toss with a simple vinaigrette of cider vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, sugar, tarragon, parsley.

Cover and refrigerate. 
Next day about 3 hours before the picnic, take from fridge and toss.
 Add more vinegar if not zesty enough.
Add a little cold water if the salad seems dry.

Close to serving time add 3 or 4 well chopped hardboiled eggs 
and  1/4 C of bacon bits. [made fresh, not from a jar!]. 
Toss again, serve room temp. 

Good for hot weather as the dressing won't go bad easily.
