Bacon and Vinegar Potato Salad

This is my favorite potato salad. Its so easy, delicious, fresh and the vinegar gives it the perfect kick. You can serve it cold but it is best served warm. I wait to sprinkle the bacon on right before serving because no one wants chewy bacon. Also when I store leftovers it in the fridge, I store the bacon crumbles in a separate bowl so they stay crisp. 

Bacon and Vinegar Potato Salad

6 cups white potatoes, diced (I do not peel but you could)
6 slices bacon, diced (i use a scissors to cut up)
1 medium onion, diced
1/3 cup white vinegar
2.5 tablespoons water
1.5 tablespoons white sugar
1-2 teaspoons salt
 ground black pepper
 fresh parsley

Boil potatoes in salted water until tender, about 10-15 min. Sauté bacon pieces in frying pan, stirring constantly until crisp. Drain bacon pieces on paper towels but reserve a little bacon fat in the frying pan. Add the onion to the reserved bacon fat and sauté until softened. Add salt and pepper.

Tale off the heat and add vinegar, water and sugar. Add cooked potatoes, stir together and season with more salt and pepper if needed.

Serve warm and finish with crispy bacon and parsley.
