Supper easy. Quite tasty.
I clipped this recipe from an old TOH years ago, but never tried it. I don't know why I waited so long to experiment with this, but it's totally delicious!! The apple cider vinegar and bacon pair very well together; plus the sugar adds sweetness to the tang. I'm very pleased :)
As is recipe's a bit too sweet for my taste, but I cut sugar in half, added some chopped celery and a couple more slices of bacon and it was great!
This a fabulous recipe. Even my young grandchildren love it.
Excellent!!! And so easy! This was my first time making German Potato Salad and everyone loved it! I will definitely make this again and again. I understand that altering the recipe and then rating it is not usually acceptable, but since I have to cook gluten-free, I did substitute cornstarch for the flour and it came out fantastic (use 1/2 as much cornstarch as you would flour when thickening, so I used 1 Tbs. cornstarch).
