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.
