this is a winner, have made it on several occasions. adapts well to bigger and smaller crowds and is equally tasty served warm or at room temperature. my summer staple.

This is always a winner for summer meals. It takes minimal effort and feeds more than four (at least in our circle of friends). Recommended changes is to add 1/2 cup of chopped parsley at the end and 3 tsps of brown sugar to the vinegar (and we just use white vinegar). We serve it warm, but it also takes good as it cools.

I added a small amount of flour in with the bacon and onions so the sauce is thicker and sticks to the potatoes better. Also used apple cider vinegar instead of white wine vinegar for a slightly different flavor.

PS: I just love this recipe since I'm not overly fond of mayo in salads, plus it is a great one for someone with allergies or aversion to eggs or egg products.

Chopped dill pickle and celery can be added to make this even more yummy, if you happen to like those ingredients, too!
